Famous quotes containing the word jefferson:

    It is an immense misfortune to the empire to have a king of such a disposition at such a time. We are told and every thing proves it true that he is the bitterest enemy we have.... To undo his empire he has but one truth more to learn, that after colonies have drawn the sword there is but one step more they can take.
    —Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    Our ancestors ... were laborers, not lawyers.
