Interesting, I got a low score, but I'm also not American and not that well affiliated with these particular quotes. If there was anything from Washington's farewell address or Thomas Jefferson's Bible I'd be sure to pick it up.

I do know that it wasn't called "The White House" in Washington, Jefferson, and Adam's time. It would have been called the President's Mansion. I have read that it was named the White House after the Burning of Washington (1814; part of the war of 1812). The story goes that it was painted white to cover up burn marks.
