Give up money, give up fame, give up science, give the earth itself…

Give up money, give up fame, give up science, give the earth itself… --Thomas Jefferson

Give up money, give up fame, give up science, give the earth itself and all it contains rather than do an immoral act. And never suppose that in any possible situation, or under any circumstances, it is best for you to do a dishonorable thing, however slightly so it may appear to you… From the practice of the purest virtue, you may be assured you will derive the most sublime comforts in every moment of life, and in the moment of death.

Thomas Jefferson

Year: 1785
