Bonus Quotation of the Day…

… is from John Adams’s August 24th, 1815, letter to Thomas Jefferson:

What do We mean by the Revolution? The War? That was no part of the Revolution. It was only an Effect and Consequence of it. The Revolution was in the Minds of the People, and this was effected, from 1760 to 1775, in the course of fifteen Years before a drop of blood was drawn at Lexington.

DBx: Indeed.

Ideas matter, and matter most of all.
