Thomas Jefferson by Rembrandt Peale, 1800.jpg  
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.
~ Thomas Jefferson ~
