John Adams Portrait

"Whether he is spiteful, playful, witty, kind, cold, drunk, sober, angry, easy stiff, jealous, cautious, close, open, it is always in the wrong place or to the wrong person."

This is attributed to "One of Adams' cabinet members", but whoever said it was not far from the mark by all accounts.

Does this remind you of yourself or a loved one?
