„We cannot make Events. Our Business is wisely to improve them.“

—  Samuel Adams American statesman, Massachusetts governor, and political philosopher 1722 - 1803

Letter to Samuel Cooper (30 April 1776) http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/2093
Contexto: We cannot make Events. Our Business is wisely to improve them. There has been much to do to confirm doubting Friends & fortify the Timid. It requires time to bring honest Men to think & determine alike even in important Matters. Mankind are governed more by their feelings than by reason.
