Thomas Jefferson Quotes:
"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from
those who are willing to work and give to those who would not".

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent
the government from wasting the labors of the people
under the pretense of taking care of them".

"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government
results from too much government".

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms".

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep
and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves
against tyranny in government".

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with
the blood of patriots and tyrants".

"To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation
of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful
and tyrannical."

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to
our liberties than standing armies. If the American people
ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency,
first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations
that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of
all property until their children wake-up homeless on the
continent their fathers conquered".

"I tremble for my country when I recall that God is just, and that His justice will not sleep forever."

"The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first."

In his 1787 Notes on the State of Virginia, Jefferson stated:

"Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burned, tortured, fined and imprisoned. What has been the effect of this coercion? To make one half the world fools and the other half hypocrites; to support roguery and error all over the earth. ... Our sister states of Pennsylvania and New York, however, have long subsisted without any establishment at all. The experiment was new and doubtful when they made it. It has answered beyond conception. They flourish infinitely. Religion is well supported; of various kinds, indeed, but all good enough; all sufficient to preserve peace and order: or if a sect arises, whose tenets would subvert morals, good sense has fair play, and reasons and laughs it out of doors, without suffering the state to be troubled with it. They do not hang more malefactors than we do. They are not more disturbed with religious dissensions. On the contrary, their harmony is unparalleled, and can be ascribed to nothing but their unbounded tolerance, because there is no other circumstance in which they differ from every nation on earth. They have made the happy discovery, that the way to silence religious disputes, is to take no notice of them. Let us too give this experiment fair play, and get rid, while we may, of those tyrannical laws."

Furthermore, in 1817 he wrote to John Adams:

"The Christian priesthood, finding the doctrines of Christ levelled to every understanding and too plain to need explanation, saw, in the mysticisms of Plato, Materials with which they might build up an artificial system which might, from its indistinctness, admit everlasting controversy, give employment for their order, and introduce it to profit, power, and preeminence. The doctrines which flowed from the lips of Jesus himself are within the comprehension of a child; but thousands of volumes have not yet explained the Platonisms engrafted on them: and for this obvious reason that nonsense can never be explained."

Additionally, Thomas Jefferson also denied the divine inspiration of the Book of Revelation, describing it to Alexander Smyth in 1825 as "merely the ravings of a maniac, no more worthy nor capable of explanation than the incoherencies of our own nightly dreams". From his study of the Bible, Jefferson concluded that Jesus never claimed to be God.
