Me too

“I had rather be shut up in a very modest cottage with my books, my family and a few old friends, dining on simple bacon, and letting the world roll on as it liked, than to occupy the most splendid post, which any human power can give.”

Thomas Jefferson

    Me too ;-). It does raise the question though why he became the president of the U.S. then…

    Well, in the end he retired to Monticello… Maybe he wanted to help establishing a system that guaranteed individual freedom. As usual, it didn’t last. 😦
    The battle for freedom is endless.
