“I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.” 

Thomas Jefferson

“The poor who have neither property, friends, nor strength to labor are boarded in the houses of good farmers, to whom a stipulated sum is annually paid. To those who are able to help themselves a little or have friends from whom they derive some succor, inadequate however to their full maintenance, supplementary aids are given which enable them to live comfortably in their own houses or in the houses of their friends. Vagabonds without visible property or vocation, are placed in work houses, where they are well clothed, fed, lodged, and made to labor”

Thomas Jefferson

“I write nothing for publication, and last of all things should it be on the subject of religion. On the dogmas of religion as distinguished from moral principles, all mankind, from the beginning of the world to this day, have been quarrelling, fighting, burning and torturing one another, for abstractions unintelligible to themselves and to all others, and absolutely beyond the comprehension of the human mind. Were I to enter on that arena, I should only add an unit to the number of Bedlamites.

Thomas Jefferson

“The inquisition of public opinion overwhelms in practice the freedom asserted by the laws in theory.”

Thomas Jefferson

“The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family” 

Thomas Jefferson

“Follow truth wherever it may lead you.”

Thomas Jefferson

“Truth is great and will prevail if left to herself.”

Thomas Jefferson

“While the art of printing is left to us science can never be retrograde; what is once acquired of real knowledge can never be lost.”

Thomas Jefferson

“No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, no culture comparable to that of the garden...But though an old man, I am but a young gardener.”

Thomas Jefferson

“The attempt of Lavoisier to reform chemical nomenclature is premature. One single experiment may destroy the whole filiation of his terms; and his string of sulphates, sulphites, and sulphures, may have served no end than to have retarded the progress of science by a jargon, from the confusion of which time will be requisite to extricate us.” 

Thomas Jefferson

“I have often thought that if heaven had given me choice of my position and calling, it should have been on a rich spot of earth, well watered, and near a good market for the productions of the garden. No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no lucture comparable to that of the garden. Sucha a variety of subjeccts, some one always coming to perfection, the failure of one thing repaired by the succes of another, and instead of one harvest a continued one through the year. Under a total want of demand except for our family table, I am still devoted to the garden.”

Thomas Jefferson

“If you want something you’ve never had, you’ve got to do something you’ve never done before.”

Thomas Jefferson

“There is a ripeness of time for death,  regarding others as well as ourselves, when it is reasonable we should drop off, and make room for  another growth. When we have lived our generation out, we should not wish to encroach on another.”

Thomas Jefferson

“Be polite to all, but intimate with few.”

Thomas Jefferson

“Enlighten the people, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.”

Thomas Jefferson
