Several Thomas Jefferson’s quotes.

Great thoughts don’t die!

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.

If we can but prevent the government from wasting the labours of the people, under the pretence of taking care of them, they must become happy.
