Private Virtue & Patriotism

Samuel_Adams

“He who is void of virtuous Attachments in private Life, is, or very soon will be void of all Regard for his Country.  There is seldom an Instance of a Man guilty of betraying his Country, who had not before lost the Feeling of moral Obligations in his private Connections.”

– Samuel Adams,
letter to James Warren, 1775
