More From Thomas Jefferson
- "Books constitute capital. A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, it is their only capital."
- "The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time."
- "War is an instrument entirely inefficient toward redressing wrong; and multiplies, instead of indemnifying losses."
