Thought of the Day

"Men do not care how nobly they live, but only how long they live, although it is in the reach of every man to live nobly, but within no man's power to live long."

Lucius Annaeus Seneca

3 BC - 65 AD

"What more is necessary to make us a happy and prosperous people? Still one thing more ... a wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from labour the bread it has earned."

Thomas Jefferson

"In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress."

John Adams
