A Quote by John Adams on conversation, country, death, determination, and survival

Mr. Adams, describing a conversation with Jonathan Sewall in 1774, says: "I answered that the die was now cast; I had passed the Rubicon. Swim or sink, live or die, survive or perish with my country was my unalterable determination."

John Adams (1735 - 1826)
