Harry George's SiteMap



I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain.

[John Adams, letter to Abigail Adams, May 12, 1780. Quoted in Bartlett's "Familiar Quotations",16th ed, pg 338]
