Good quotes from dvd "John Adams"
I'm really enjoying the first disk of this series, John Adams. I had to stop the elliptical trainer twice today to write down a smidgen of the dialog.
1. Abigail Adams to her husband John: "You have overloaded your argument with ostentatious erudition." (Nota bene, all ye grad students and lawyers.)
2. John Adams to his son: "Manure is an art, and I consider my self an accomplished artist."
Which reminds me of what one of my website clients told me the other day, was he cribbing from this movie? "I regard myself as a sculptor, but my medium is bull-t."
