FFQF: Extraordinary Madness

Favorite Founding Father's Quote Day

My temper in general has been tranquil, except when any instance of extraordinary madness, deceit, hypocrisy, ingratitude, treachery or perfidy, has suddenly struck me. Then I have always been irascible enough, and in three or four instances, very extraordinary ones, too much so. The storm, however, never lasted for half an hour, and anger never rested in the bosom.

John Adams to Skelton Jones, March 11, 1809, from The Founders on the Founders (2008), ed. Kaminski
