A Quote by John Adams on abuse, grief, history, mankind, and thought

I almost shudder at the thought of alluding to the most fatal example of the abuses of grief which the history of mankind has preserved-the Cross. Consider what calamities that engine of grief has produced!

John Adams (1735 - 1826)
