|A founding father's immutable words|
|God created the mind free|

Jefferson was a great thinker, a gentleman farmer, a brewer, philosopher, architect, and statesman. He is one of my favorite presidents, and a person whose character I admire. Aristotle said, "Plot is character in action." Judging by the arc of Jefferson's life and his many achievements, he has earned his striking memorial and a revered place in our Nation's history.

Yes.... That quote may not be lyrical, but it is sublime. If your mind is not free, when did you cage it?
