  • Thomas Jefferson

    A voice from the past to lead us in the future:

    John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the White House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: "This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House, with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone."

    "When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe ."
    - Thomas Jefferson

    "The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not." -- Thomas Jefferson

    "It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on, would save one-half the wars of the world." - Thomas Jefferson

    "I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretense of taking care of them." - Thomas Jefferson

    "My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government."
    - Thomas Jefferson

    "No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms."
    - Thomas Jefferson

    "The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." - Thomas Jefferson

    "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." - Thomas Jefferson

    "To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes, the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical." -- Thomas Jefferson

    I'm afraid to even say Amen because it would decrease the average intelligence of the speakers
