Thomas Jefferson Quote

“It is a great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual, he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world's believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all it's good dispositions.”

President Jefferson speaks the truth!

Joel, Rochester, MI

...and Bill Clinton is the mean, pitiful, contemptible man, habitually telling lies.

Debbie Cline, Pilot Mountain,NC

This is so very true. Lies are like cavaties; if left uncorrected, lead to rottenness of the tooth/soul.

Mike, Norwalk

We hold this truth to be self evident. History, over and again has proven the accuracy of the whole statement. Clinton(s) is an excellent example. Bill the liar is a depraved sexual predator. Hitlary the liar is a depraved war mongering criminal.

" These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren." Proverbs 6:16,17,18,19. Sums up the Clintons as with the current administration

E Archer, NYC

INTEGRITY. With it, we prosper, without it, we fall.

Scsurfr, La mirada

You would think that Thomas Jefferson was somehow resurrected and speaking directly to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
