One of the greatest men who ever walked the planet. I believe there are three Americans who stand taller than all the great men and women we have produced, and one is Thomas Jefferson. The others are Mark Twain who held America to it's highest standards and was the soul and conscience or our great nation. The third was John F. Kennedy who, at the time of his death had negotiated the end to the Vietnam War, the Cold War, and normalization of relations with the Soviet Union, Cuba, and China on his way to "General total disarmament."
Nobody described Jefferson better than President Kennedy at his dinner for Nobel Prize Winners on April 29, 1962:
"I want to tell you how welcome you are to the White House. I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone. Someone once said that Thomas Jefferson was a gentleman of 32 who could calculate an eclipse, survey an estate, tie an artery, plan an edifice, try a cause, break a horse, and dance the minuet."
This painting is inscribed with Jefferson's motto, "Rebellion to tyrants is obediance to God."
