“I must study Politicks and War that my sons may have liberty to study Painting and Poetry Mathematicks and Philosophy. My sons ought to study Mathematicks and Philosophy, Geography, natural History, Naval Architecture, navigation, Commerce and Agriculture, in order to give their Children a right to study Painting, Poetry, Musick, Architecture, Statuary, Tapestry and Porcelaine.” -Popular part of a 1780 letter, from eventual USA President John Adams, to his wife Abigail.

The full quotation:

“I must study Politicks and War that my sons may have liberty to study Painting and Poetry Mathematicks and Philosophy. My sons ought to study Mathematicks and Philosophy, Geography, natural History, Naval Architecture, navigation, Commerce and Agriculture, in order to give their Children a right to study Painting, Poetry, Musick, Architecture, Statuary, Tapestry and Porcelaine — so that their children will spend every waking moment addicted to self-indulgence, while downplaying a legacy of slavery and serfdom, as their government expands both worldwide–then becoming functionally useless, and completely insane, by so consistent a complete detachment from reality.”
