Capitol Spring Aphorism #85


“Man is not made for the State but the State for man and it derives its just powers only from the consent of the governed.”


It had been a beautiful day walking around the Capitol and enjoying the fresh colors of blooming trees, the brisk wind and the bright sky, all gifts of this wonderful Spring. I wish our politicians would also renew their commitment to the public good and remember what Thomas Jefferson said quoted above.

    • Yes Sherri, Thomas Jefferson was a wise man. Our politicians could learn a lot just reading his writings. Actually, this is the State Capitol, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
