–Thomas Jefferson


I cannot live without books

Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.

Never trouble another for what you can do for yourself.

I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.

Whenever you are to do a thing, though it can never be known but to yourself, ask yourself how you would act were all the world looking at you and act accordingly.

The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do.

When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.

Friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life.

Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.

Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.

I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.
