Do you have a favorite quote? Does one really stir you?


  1. I don't really have a particular favorite, but I love the writings of Thomas Jefferson. I remember standing inside the Jefferson Memorial, and looking up and reading his words, just feeling awestruck. It chokes me up just thinking about it, because what a visionary and what a remarkable man to have framed the basis of our government and our philosophy as a nation.
