Thomas Jefferson

A quote from Thomas Jefferson

Above all things, lose no occasion of exercising your dispositions to be grateful, to be generous, to be charitable, to be humane, to be true, just, firm, orderly, courageous, Andc. Consider every act of this kind, as an exercise which will strengthen your moral faculties and increase your worth.

— Letter to Peter Carr [August 10, 1787]
