John Quincy, John, and Samuel Adams

John Quincy Adams: "The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity."

Samuel Adams: "We have this day restored The Sovereign to whom all men ought to be obedient, and from the rising to the setting sun, let His kingdom come."

Samuel Adams: "In short, we should teach our young people to study the practice and the exalted virtues of the Christian system."

John Adams: "We are basing the hope of mankind in our ability to govern ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God."

John Adams: "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other."
