In matters of principle, stand like a rock. Thomas Jefferson


In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
- Thomas Jefferson [attributed]

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
- Thomas Jefferson [Declaration of Independence, and inscribed in the Jefferson Memorial]

I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times.
- Thomas Jefferson [inscribed in the Jefferson Memorial]

Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States, was the principal author of the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson was also a farmer, horticulturist, architect, archaeologist, paleontologist, and inventor. One of his lesser known accomplishments was editing his own version of the Bible - The Jefferson Bible - which merges the four Gospels and focuses on Jesus own words. The text of The Jefferson Bible is now in the public domain and is freely available online.
