Jefferson quote

A good government is one "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 that it has earned.

- Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) (inaugural address)

While in DC I became a fan of Jefferson quotes.
