"I must study politics and war, that my sons
may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history
and naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to
give their children the right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture,
statuary, tapestry, and porcelain."
Letters of John Adams addressed to his wife, edited by Charles Francis Adams 1841, vol II, Letter 78, 1780
