  600. There is not a truth existing which I fear… or would wish unknown to the whole world.
  601. There is not a sprig of grass that shoots uninteresting to me.
  602. There is a natural aristocracy among men. The grounds of this are virtue and talents.
  603. The world is indebted for all triumphs which have been gained by reason and humanity over error and oppression.
  604. The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading submissions on the other. Our children see this, and learn to imitate it.
  605. The way to silence religious disputes is to take no notice of them.
  606. The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
  607. The spirit of this country is totally adverse to a large military force.
  608. The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.
  609. The second office in the government is honorable and easy; the first is but a splendid misery.
  610. The republican is the only form of government which is not eternally at open or secret war with the rights of mankind.
  611. The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.
  612. The natural cause of the human mind is certainly from credulity to skepticism.
  613. The most successful war seldom pays for its losses.
  614. The moment a person forms a theory, his imagination sees in every object only the traits which favor that theory.
  615. The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.
  616. The good opinion of mankind, like the lever of Archimedes, with the given fulcrum, moves the world.
  617. The glow of one warm thought is to me worth more than money.
  618. The earth belongs to the living, not to the dead.
  619. The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that… it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.
  620. The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.
  621. The boisterous sea of liberty is never without a wave.
  622. The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time.
  623. The Creator has not thought proper to mark those in the forehead who are of stuff to make good generals. We are first, therefore, to seek them blindfold, and then let them learn the trade at the expense of great losses.
  624. That government is the strongest of which every man feels himself a part.
  625. Taste cannot be controlled by law.
  626. Speeches that are measured by the hour will die with the hour.
  627. 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.
  628. So confident am I in the intentions, as well as wisdom, of the government, that I shall always be satisfied that what is not done, either cannot, or ought not to be done.
  629. 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.
  630. Resort is had to ridicule only when reason is against us.
  631. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear.
  632. Power is not alluring to pure minds.
  633. Politics is such a torment that I advise everyone I love not to mix with it.
  634. Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.
  635. Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy, and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it.
  636. Peace and abstinence from European interferences are our objects, and so will continue while the present order of things in America remain uninterrupted.
  637. Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.
  638. Our country is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit: by consolidation of power first, and then corruption, its necessary consequence.
  639. Only aim to do your duty, and mankind will give you credit where you fail.
  640. One travels more usefully when alone, because he reflects more.
  641. One man with courage is a majority.
  642. One loves to possess arms, though they hope never to have occasion for them.
  643. Nothing is unchangeable but the inherent and unalienable rights of man.
  644. Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances.
  645. Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.
  646. None but an armed nation can dispense with a standing army. To keep ours armed and disciplined is therefore at all times important.
  647. No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden.
  648. No man will ever carry out of the Presidency the reputation which carried him into it.
  649. No government ought to be without censors; and where the press is free no one ever will.
  650. No freeman shall be debarred the use of arms.
  651. No duty the Executive had to perform was so trying as to put the right man in the right place.
  652. Never spend your money before you have earned it.
  653. My theory has always been, that if we are to dream, the flatteries of hope are as cheap, and pleasanter, than the gloom of despair.
  654. My only fear is that I may live too long. This would be a subject of dread to me.
  655. Money, not morality, is the principle commerce of civilized nations.
  656. Merchants have no country. The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains.
  657. Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
  658. Leave no authority existing not responsible to the people.
  659. Leave all the afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading. I will rather say more necessary because health is worth more than learning.
  660. It takes time to persuade men to do even what is for their own good.
  661. It is our duty still to endeavor to avoid war; but if it shall actually take place, no matter by whom brought on, we must defend ourselves. If our house be on fire, without inquiring whether it was fired from within or without, we must try to extinguish it.
  662. It is neither wealth nor splendor; but tranquility and occupation which give you happiness.
  663. It is more dangerous that even a guilty person should be punished without the forms of law than that he should escape.
  664. It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.
  665. It is in our lives and not our words that our religion must be read.
  666. It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.
  667. It is always better to have no ideas than false ones; to believe nothing, than to believe what is wrong.
  668. It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God.
  669. It behooves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to resist invasions of it in the case of others: or their case may, by change of circumstances, become his own.
  670. In truth, politeness is artificial good humor, it covers the natural want of it, and ends by rendering habitual a substitute nearly equivalent to the real virtue.
  671. In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
  672. In every country and every age, the priest had been hostile to Liberty.
  673. In defense of our persons and properties under actual violation, we took up arms. When that violence shall be removed, when hostilities shall cease on the part of the aggressors, hostilities shall cease on our part also.
  674. Ignorance is preferable to error, and he is less remote from the truth who believes nothing than he who believes what is wrong.
  675. If we can but prevent the government from wasting the labours of the people, under the pretence of taking care of them, they must become happy.
  676. If there is one principle more deeply rooted in the mind of every American, it is that we should have nothing to do with conquest.
  677. If the present Congress errs in too much talking, how can it be otherwise in a body to which the people send one hundred and fifty lawyers, whose trade it is to question everything, yield nothing, and talk by the hour?
  678. If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.

  682. I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.
  683. I think with the Romans, that the general of today should be a soldier tomorrow if necessary.
  684. I sincerely believe… that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.
  685. I own that I am not a friend to a very energetic government. It is always oppressive.
  686. I never will, by any word or act, bow to the shrine of intolerance or admit a right of inquiry into the religious opinions of others.
  687. I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.
  688. I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.
  689. I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion.
  690. I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.
  691. I hope our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us, that the less we use our power the greater it will be.
  692. I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.
  693. I have seen enough of one war never to wish to see another.
  694. I have no fear that the result of our experiment will be that men may be trusted to govern themselves without a master.
  695. I have no ambition to govern men; it is a painful and thankless office.

  697. I find that he is happiest of whom the world says least, good or bad.
  698. I do not take a single newspaper, nor read one a month, and I feel myself infinitely the happier for it.
  699. I cannot live without books.
  700. I believe that every human mind feels pleasure in doing good to another.
  701. I am mortified to be told that, in the United States of America, the sale of a book can become a subject of inquiry, and of criminal inquiry too.
  702. I am an Epicurean. I consider the genuine (not the imputed) doctrines of Epicurus as containing everything rational in moral philosophy which Greek and Roman leave to us.

  704. How much pain they have cost us, the evils which have never happened.
  705. Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.
  706. History, in general, only informs us of what bad government is.
  707. Here was buried Thomas Jefferson Author of the Declaration of American Independence Of the Statute of Virginia for religious freedom & Father of the University of Virginia.
  708. He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.
  709. He who knows best knows how little he knows.
  710. Happiness is not being pained in body or troubled in mind.
  711. Friendship is but another name for an alliance with the follies and the misfortunes of others. Our own share of miseries is sufficient: why enter then as volunteers into those of another?
  712. Force is the vital principle and immediate parent of despotism.
  713. For a people who are free, and who mean to remain so, a well-organized and armed militia is their best security.
  714. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear.
  715. Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.
  716. Experience demands that man is the only animal which devours his own kind, for I can apply no milder term to the general prey of the rich on the poor.
  717. Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.
  718. Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state.
  719. Errors of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left free to combat it.
  720. Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.
  721. Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.
  722. Don’t talk about what you have done or what you are going to do.
  723. Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
  724. Do not bite at the bait of pleasure, till you know there is no hook beneath it.
  725. Difference of opinion is advantageous in religion. The several sects perform the office of a Censor – over each other.
  726. 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.
  727. Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition.
  728. Delay is preferable to error.
  729. Conquest is not in our principles. It is inconsistent with our government.
  730. Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto.
  731. But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.
  732. Books constitute capital. A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, it is their only capital.
  733. Bodily decay is gloomy in prospect, but of all human contemplations the most abhorrent is body without mind.
  734. Be polite to all, but intimate with few.
  735. As our enemies have found we can reason like men, so now let us show them we can fight like men also.
  736. An injured friend is the bitterest of foes.
  737. An enemy generally says and believes what he wishes.
  738. An association of men who will not quarrel with one another is a thing which has never yet existed, from the greatest confederacy of nations down to a town meeting or a vestry.
  739. Always take hold of things by the smooth handle.
  740. All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.
  741. Advertisements contain the only truths to be relied on in a newspaper.
  742. A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned.
  743. A coward is much more exposed to quarrels than a man of spirit.
  744. A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference.

  888. You will be better advised to watch what we do instead of what we say.
  889. You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.
  890. What I say is that, if a fellow really likes potatoes, he must be a pretty decent sort of fellow.
  891. Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.
  892. War is something of man’s own fostering, and if all mankind renounces it, then it is no longer there.
  893. To the uneducated, an A is just three sticks.
  894. Tiggers don’t like honey.
  895. The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.
  896. The Old Testament is responsible for more atheism, agnosticism, disbelief – call it what you will – than any book ever written. It has emptied more churches than all the counter-attractions of cinema, motor-bicycle and golf course.
  897. Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.
  898. Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
  899. Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.
  900. One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.
  901. No sensible author wants anything but praise.
  902. Never forget me, because if I thought you would, I’d never leave.
  903. My spelling is Wobbly. It’s good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places.
  904. It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words, like ‘What about lunch?’
  905. Is ‘The Wind in the Willows’ a children’s book? Is ‘Alice in Wonderland?’ Is ‘Treasure Island?’ These are masterpieces which we read with pleasure as children, but with how much more pleasure when we are grown-up.
  906. If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.
  907. If one is to be called a liar, one may as well make an effort to deserve the name.
  908. I suppose that every one of us hopes secretly for immortality; to leave, I mean, a name behind him which will live forever in this world, whatever he may be doing, himself, in the next.
  909. I gave up writing children’s books. I wanted to escape from them as I had once wanted to escape from ‘Punch’: as I have always wanted to escape. In vain.
  910. I am sure of this: that no one can write a book which children will like unless he write it for himself first.
  911. Golf is so popular simply because it is the best game in the world at which to be bad.
  912. Don’t underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along, listening to all the thing you can’t hear, and not bothering.
  913. Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?
  914. Bores can be divided into two classes; those who have their own particular subject, and those who do not need a subject.
  915. Almost anyone can be an author; the business is to collect money and fame from this state of being.
  916. A writer wants something more than money for his work: he wants permanence.
  917. A clever conjurer is welcome anywhere, and those of us whose powers of entertainment are limited to the setting of booby-traps or the arranging of apple-pie beds must view with envy the much greater tribute of laughter and applause which is the lot of the prestidigitator with some natural gift for legerdemain.
  918. You see, God helps only people who work hard. That principle is very clear.
  919. You have to dream before your dreams can come true.
  920. Writing is my love. If you love something, you find a lot of time. I write for two hours a day, usually starting at midnight; at times, I start at 11.
  921. Widespread use of antibiotics promotes the spread of antibiotic resistance. Smart use of antibiotics is the key to controlling its spread.
  922. Why are we, as a nation so obsessed with foreign things? Is it a legacy of our colonial years? We want foreign television sets. We want foreign shirts. We want foreign technology. Why this obsession with everything imported?
  923. While children are struggling to be unique, the world around them is trying all means to make them look like everybody else.
