„We cannot make Events. Our Business is wisely to improve them.“

—  Samuel Adams American statesman, Massachusetts governor, and political philosopher 1722 - 1803
Context: We cannot make Events. Our Business is wisely to improve them. There has been much to do to confirm doubting Friends & fortify the Timid.
