Favorite Quotes: Two By Thomas Jefferson


Jefferson

“Ignorance is preferable to error, and he is less remote from the truth who believes nothing than he who believes what is wrong.”

“Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for 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.” –Thomas Jefferson

    According to my book learnin’, Richard Nixon’s energy czar was the first czar appointed by a U.S. president. Ronald Reagan appointed a drug czar during his first term, providing the “czars” with more policy clout within the executive branch. The “czars” were expanded during George W. Bush’s two terms.

    But that’s just according to book learnin’. These folks apparently know the real truth.
