The Wisdom of Jefferson


There are many wise and wonderful quotes from Thomas Jefferson, one of our founding fathers, but this one surpasses them all:

“I had rather be shut up in a very modest cottage with my books, my family and a few old friends, dining on simple bacon, and letting the world roll on as it liked, than to occupy the most splendid post, which any human power can give.”


The only addition I would make is COFFEE. Coffee is the catalyst of many good conversations!
