Quote by John Quincy Adams

When John Quincy Adams, at 80, was asked how he was, he answered:

"John Quincy Adams himself is very well, thank you.  But the house he lives in is sadly dilapidated.  It is tottering on its foundations.  The walls are badly shattered and the roof is worn; the building trembles with every wind, and I think John Quincy Adams will have to move out of it before long.  But he himself is very well."
