Implied Powers

Blue, Blue, and Brown by Mark Rothko.

“I must study politics and war, that my sons may have the liberty to study mathematics and philosophy, natural history and naval architecture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, tapestry, and porcelain.”

- John Adams

As I prep for my American Politics exam, I found a little inspiration at The Birmingham Museum of art in quote splashed across a wall. I must say I rather like studying the last batch of disciplines most of all. Thank you, John. And thank you, dear ancestors.

Sidenote: Just the quote as at the museum. Not the Rothko.
