Famous quotes containing the word jefferson:

    Exercise and application produce order in our affairs, health of body, cheerfulness of mind, and these make us precious to our friends.
    —Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    I duly acknowledge that I have gone through a long life, with fewer circumstances of affliction than are the lot of most men. Uninterrupted health, a competence for every reasonable want, usefulness to my fellow-citizens, a good portion of their esteem, no complaint against the world which has sufficiently honored me, and above all, a family which has blessed me by their affections, and never by their conduct given me a moment’s pain.
    —Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    Chide me then no more; be to me what you have been; and give me without measure the comfort of your friendship.
    —Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
