Text Quotes
We stand in the shadow of Jefferson who believed that a society founded upon the rule of law and liberty was dependent upon public education and the diffusion of knowledge.  (Jefferson Quotes) The relationship between [John] Adams and [Tomas] Jefferson was extraordinary. They differed on every conceivable issue, except on the Revolution and the love of their country.  (Jefferson Quotes) The platform we had in Dallas, the 1984 Republican platform, all the ideas we supported there - from tax policy, to foreign policy; from individual rights, to neighborhood security - are things that Jefferson Davis and his people believed in.  (Jefferson Quotes) It is false to suggest that Thomas Jefferson or any other Founding Father believed in a legal barrier to God in the public square.  (Jefferson Quotes) The suspect nature of these stories can be seen in the anecdote Jefferson told of Hamilton visiting his lodging in 1792 and inquiring about three portraits on the wallThey are my trinity of the three greatest men the world has ever produced, Jefferson replied: Sir Francis Bacon, Sir Isaac Newton, and John Locke. Hamilton supposedly replied, The greatest man that ever lived was Julius Casar.  (Jefferson Quotes) The principles of Jefferson are the definitions and axioms of free society  (Jefferson Quotes) It is easily and often overlooked that when Thomas Jefferson asserted that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness were inalienable human rights, he did so on the ground that they had been endowed by God, our Creator.  (Jefferson Quotes) We put on shows at Golden Gate Park with the Dead and Jefferson Airplane, and the groups were part of the community they emerged out of, not some superstars. We had multiple stages, diversions, communal entertainment. There is something slightly fascistic about sitting in a huge auditorium focusing all the energy on one group far away on stage.  (Jefferson Quotes) Racial rhetoric has been entwined with government from the start, all the way back to when the enemy was not Obamacare but the Grand Army of the Republic (and further in the past than that: Thomas Jefferson, after all, was derided as ‘the Negro President’).  (Jefferson Quotes) Thomas Jefferson was a real poet. He was slick with that ‘pursuit’ of happiness because the ‘pursuit’ puts it back on you.  (Jefferson Quotes) Washington and Jefferson were both rich Virginia planters, but they were never friends  (Jefferson Quotes) Before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth, we were here. Before the pen of Jefferson etched across the pages of history the majestic words of the Declaration of Independence, we were here  (Jefferson Quotes) This fellow they've nominated claims he's the new Thomas Jefferson. Well let me tell you something; I knew Thomas Jefferson. He was a friend of mine and Governor... You're no Thomas Jefferson!  (Jefferson Quotes) Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein  (Jefferson Quotes) I am a humanist because I think humanity can, with constant moral guidance, create reasonably decent societies. I think that young people who want to understand the world can profit from the works of Plato and Socrates, the behaviour of the three Thomases, Aquinas, more and Jefferson - the austere analyses of Immanuel Kant and the political leadership of Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt  (Jefferson Quotes) I believe that Thomas Jefferson said: 'If it neither breaks my leg nor picks my pocket, what difference is it to me?'  (Jefferson Quotes) In America everybody is of the opinion that he has no social superiors, since all men are equal, but he does not admit that he has no social inferiors, for, from the time of Jefferson onward, the doctrine that all men are equal applies only upwards, not downwards  (Jefferson Quotes) Jefferson owned slaves. He did not believe that all were created equal. He was a racist  (Jefferson Quotes) Jefferson thought schools would produce free men: we prove him right by putting dropouts in jail  (Jefferson Quotes) Jesus and Lincoln, Moses and Jefferson can seem so long gone, so unbelievable, so dead  (Jefferson Quotes) But if there’s an erosion at home, you know, Thomas Jefferson warned about a tyranny of an oligarchy and if we surrender our democracy to the tyranny of an oligarchy, we’ve made a terrible mistake  (Jefferson Quotes) If you seek Hamilton’s monument, look around. You are living in it. We honor Jefferson, but live in Hamilton’s country, a mighty industrial nation with a strong central government  (Jefferson Quotes) Men of Virginia, countrymen of Washington, of Patrick Henry, of Jefferson, and of Madison, will ye be true to your constitutional faith  (Jefferson Quotes) Thomas Jefferson once said, ‘We should never judge a president by his age, only by his works.’ And ever since he told me that, I stopped worrying  (Jefferson Quotes) The Declaration of Independence I always considered as a theatrical show. Jefferson ran away with all the stage effect of that... and all the glory of it  (Jefferson Quotes) Most Americans are unaware that Thomas Jefferson was the first American president to go to war against radical Islam. Jefferson was very concerned with Islam’s war-like doctrine and its inability to separate mosque and state.  (Jefferson Quotes) People have always said - those words, ‘too conservative,’ is fairly relative. I’m sure that they probably said that about Thomas Jefferson and George Washington and Benjamin Franklin  (Jefferson Quotes) We stand in the shadow of Jefferson who believed that a society founded upon the rule of law and liberty was dependent upon public education and the diffusion of knowledge  (Jefferson Quotes) I find it more than a little disingenuous to act as if this were something that set Jefferson apart from all mankind  (Jefferson Quotes) Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Roosevelt faced adversities that, in their times, seemed impregnable. Great presidents overcome great odds  (Jefferson Quotes)
