Introduction:Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence and was the third President of the United States of America. There are many quotes said by Thomas Jefferson that one should remember.
"The tree liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." This is one of my favorite quotes by Thomas Jefferson. It is important to let the government know if they are violating our rights and we will do what we need to do to protect our rights.
"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." Tyranny in the government means that they are abusing their power. This quote states that the people have a right to protect themselves.
"The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it." The second amendment protects the right to people to bear arms. This is another important quote to remember by Thomas Jefferson.
"The man who reads nothing at all is better than educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers." This is a great quote. Even back then Jefferson is implying that the main stream media only tells what they want people to hear. It is important to always do your own research in a history book.
"He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors." There are so many lies out there that are told. Again, similar to the quote in #4, it is very important to do your own research before you automatically believe what you hear.
