[mp_quote cite=”Thomas Jefferson” quote_content=”“Truth will do well enough if left to shift for herself.

Error indeed has often prevailed by the assistance of power or force. Truth is the proper & sufficient antagonist to error.”” margin=”none,none,none,none”]

We’ve learned that piling up material goods cannot fill the emptiness of lives which have no confidence or purpose. ”” margin=”none,none,none,none”]
