                  There are only two creatures of value on the face of the earth: those with the commitment, and those who require the commitment of others.

One Response to Commitment

    Re: this published quote attributable to John Adams: “There are only two creatures of value on the face of the earth: those with the commitment, and those who require the commitment of others.”

    My research shows that although this quote is widely misattributed to John and/or Abigail Adams, it’s only the product of artistic license—invented by Peter Stone and Sherman Edwards as a “letter” used in scene 7 of their popular musical 1776.
