I started reading a biography of John Adams this week that i bought when i visited his birthplace in Quincy this summer. I'm already loving it and cant put it down.
"Upon common theaters, indeed, the applause of the audience is of more importance to the actor than thei own approbation. But upon the stage of life, while conscience claps, let the world hiss! On the contary if conscience disapproves the loudest applauses of the world are of little value."John Adams
