A Quote by Abigail Smith Adams on challenge, genius, life, and wishes

These are times in which a genius would wish to live. It is not in the still calm of life, or in the repose of a pacific station, that great challenges are formed. . . . Great necessities call out great virtues.

Abigail Adams (1744 - 1818)
