A Quote by Thomas Jefferson on control, discretion, education, exercise, people, remedies, society, and elightenment

I know of no safe repository for the ultimate powers of society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to increase their discretion by education.

Thomas Jefferson (1743 - 1826)
