Quote from Thomas Jefferson,

"...truth is great and will prevail if left to herself;
that she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error,
and has nothing to fear from the conflict unless
by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons,
free argument and debate, errors ceasing to be dangerous
when it is permitted freely to contradict them."


Thomas Jefferson (more quotes by Thomas Jefferson or books by/about Thomas Jefferson)

(1743-1826), US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President
