John Adams

October 30, 1735 - July 04, 1826
"Human nature itself is evermore an advocate for liberty. There is also in human nature a resentment of injury, and indignation against wrong. A love of truth and a veneration of virtue. These amiable passions, are the "latent spark." ... If the people are capable of understanding, seeing and feeling the differences between true and false, right and wrong, virtue and vice, to what better principle can the friends of mankind apply than to the sense of this difference."source: The Novanglus, 1775.natural law, human nature, liberty, right vs wrong, understanding
