Thomas Jefferson

A quote from Thomas Jefferson

The moral sense, or conscience, is as much a part of man as his leg or arm. It is given to all human beings in a stronger or weaker degree, as force of members is given them in a greater or less degree. It may be strengthened by exercise, as may any particular limb of the body.

— Letter to Peter Carr [August 10th, 1787]
