"As my whole life has been dedicated to my country in one shape or another, the poor remains of it, it is not an object to contend for ease and quiet, when all that is valuable at stake, further than to be satisfied that the sacrifice I should make these, is acceptable and desired by my country."
George Washington to John Adams,
