Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson

 

 

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.
Thomas Jefferson

 

 

When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.
Thomas Jefferson
