Thirty-five years ago a collection of letters written during the period of the Revolution and later, by John
Adams and his wife, Abigail Adams, came into my hands. They interested me so much that I thought they
might possibly interest others also, especially the growing generations not familiar with the history of the

selection from the letters of Mrs. Adams addressed to her husband; and, at a later moment, of a selection from

If you’ve been to business school or read books on goalsetting you might be familiar with the acronym SMART, which stands for Specific, Measurable, Actionable or Attributable, Realistic, and Timed.

Galileo Galilei (1564–1642) said, "The universe cannot be read until we have learned the language and become familiar with the characters in which it is written. It is written in mathematical language, and the letters are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without which means it is humanly impossible to comprehend a single word.
