“A wise and frugal Government,
which shall restrain men from injuring one another,
shall leave them otherwise free to regulate
their own pursuits of industry and improvement,
and shall not take from the mouth of labor
the bread it has earned.
This is the sum of good government”
Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), 3rd U.S. President, author of
the Declaration of Independence. First Inaugural Address, 4 March 1801.
