Happy Independence Day! …

Standard

 

“Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book,
and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited!
Every member would be obliged in conscience,
to temperance, frugality, and industry;
to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men;
and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God …
What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be.”
John Adams
2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence

Diary and Autobiography of John Adams, Vol. III, p. 9.
