Quotes from John Adams:

"In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress."
**********
"There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty."
**********
"A Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever."
**********
"I agree with you that in politics the middle way is none at all."
**********
"Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for Liberty, but it is Religion and Morality alone, which can establish the Principles upon which Freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People in a greater Measure than they have it now, They may change their Rulers and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting Liberty. They will only exchange Tyrants and Tyrannies."
**********
"The jaws of power are always open to devour, and her arm is always stretched out, if possible, to destroy the freedom of thinking, speaking, and writing."
**********
