"It takes time to persuade men to do even what is for their own good. " Thomas Jefferson
"Liberty is to the collective body, what health is to every individual body. Without health no pleasure can be tasted by man; without liberty, no happiness can be enjoyed by society." Wow, this one is right and 100% truth by Thomas Jefferson

"Power is not alluring to pure minds." Thomas Jefferson
"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual." Thomas Jefferson
"Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the form of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question." Thomas Jefferson

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." I agree with alot on this one!
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." I also stand for freedom!
"The world is indebted for all triumphs which have been gained by reason and humanity over error and oppression."
"Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty." Yes, it is so true on this one!
"Truth is certainly a branch of morality and a very important one to society."
"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
"We may consider each generation as a distinct nation, with a right, by the will of its majority, to bind themselves, but none to bind the succeeding generation, more than the inhabitants of another country."
""""When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.""" This, one is 100% true and people must face the Goverment for Liberty over tyranny! If you allow them to take over then they will take over if you fight that then freedom will be a great thing!
The only thing that I am doing is trying to help you I choose Liberty over slavery. Give me freedom or give me death! Like, most people would say. Freedom, is a great thing and if you allow evil to take over they will take over. The only thing you have to do is be in love to fight over fear and evil for what you love, freedom, happyness, friendship. That, is why we all must stand togther to fight evil if the good men do nothing the evil will try to take over everything. I am saying is true and I trust and honor Thomas Jefferson for being a great guy and helping the people's freedom's back then!
