“Another means of silently lessening the inequality of property is to exempt all from taxation below a certain point, and to tax the higher portions or property in geometrical progression as they rise. Whenever there are in any country uncultivated lands and unemployed poor, it is clear that the laws of property have been so far extended as to violate natural right. The earth is given as a common stock for man to labor and live on.

Thomas Jefferson

“I have the consolation of having added nothing to my private fortune during my public service, and of retiring with hands clean as they are empty.”

Thomas Jefferson

“When describing the University of Virginia: Here, We are not afraid to follow truth wherever it may lead, nor to tolerate any error so long as reason is left free to combat it.”

Thomas Jefferson

“The opinions and beliefs of men follow involuntarily the evidence proposed to their minds.”

Thomas Jefferson

“Reason and free inquiry are the only effectual agents against error.”

Thomas Jefferson

“The whole art of government consists in the art of being honest. Only aim to do your duty, and mankind will give you credit where you fail.”

Thomas Jefferson

“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms, those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny; and it is believed that the most effectual means of preventing this would be, to illuminate, as far as practicable, the minds of the people at large...”

Thomas Jefferson

“The main objects of all science, the freedom and happiness of man. . . . [are] the sole objects of all legitimate government.

Thomas Jefferson

“A machine for making revolutions is doing precisely the wrong thing at just the right time.”

Thomas Jefferson

“If it is believed that these elementary schools will be better managed by the governor and council or any other general authority of the government, than by the parents within each ward, it is a belief against all experience.”

Thomas Jefferson

“God grant that men of principle shall be our principal men.”

Thomas Jefferson

“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.”

Thomas Jefferson

“War is an instrument entirely inefficient toward redressing wrong; and multiplies, instead of indemnifying losses.”

Thomas Jefferson

“We confide in our strength, without boasting of it, we respect that of others, without fearing it.”

Thomas Jefferson

“Peace, that glorious moment in time when everyone stops and reloads.”

Thomas Jefferson
