America's Founding Fathers: Their Uncommon Wisdom and Wit
- Edited by Bill Adler
- Paperback: 240 pages
Arguably, no other revolution in history has enjoyed such a brilliant gallery of thinkers as the one that led to the founding of the United States. America’s Founding Fathers is centered on the personal philosophies, opinions, thoughts, witticisms, and feelings of the exemplary men who founded our nation.
This book gathers together the Founding Fathers' best quotations on subjects including life, love, marriage, family, children, religion, patriotism, sacrifice, law, professionalism, medicine, public health, education, money, “modern” society, the Revolutionary War, humor, and death.
Colleagues and rivals, friends and enemies, the eight founding fathers—Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, Benjamin Rush, and Thomas Paine—offer their views on subjects as relevant now as ever.
