Thomas Jefferson

“But though I am an old man, I am but a young gardener.”

“Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just.” [Notes on the State of Virginia]

“It is neither wealth nor splendor, but tranquility and occupation, which give happiness.”

“No more good must be attempted than the public can bear.”

“Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.” [motto on Thomas Jefferson’s seal, original author unknown]

“When angry, count ten before you speak; when very angry, count a hundred.”
