John Adams on being a Vice President 
John Adams, while serving as the Vice President:

"... My country has in its wisdom contrived
for me the most insignificant office
that ever the invention of man contrived or his imagination
conceived. And as I can do neither good nor
evil, I must be borne away by others, and meet the
common fate. "

From The Life of John Adams by Charles Francis Adams, John Quincy Adams
