A quote from Abigail Adams

I try not to use quotes for our daily feature here. However, when I was reading Minnie a book at bedtime about famous American women, I was reminded of some particularly wonderful quotes by Abigail Adams.
Her intelligence and whit, particularly during that age, cannot be forgotten.
She was a brilliant voice of the time, more vibrant and wise than many of the Founding Fathers.
Anyway, here’s a gem

I’ve always felt that a person’s intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting points of view he can entertain simultaneously on the same topic.

One can’t help but think that idea escapes many of our political leaders.

Every day, The Southpaw finds a sentence that makes him think or laugh. It can come from a song, a poem, a book, a newspaper article. It’s a daily celebration of our odd – and yet beautiful – language.
