: : Hey, does anyone know the one quote that Thomas Jefferson says while he shows the Declaration of Independence to the Congress, I think it starts off with "We hold these truths to be self-evident......
: : I dont know the rest, so if you know it can you let me know, Thank-You Mark Potvin of Canada
Don't know if anyone ever answered you but here it is:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. "
It is from the Declaration of Indepence. http://www.archives.gov/exhibit_hall/charters_of_freedom/declaration/declaration_transcription.html

If the person posting this message left their e-mail address, we inserted some random characters to prevent spammers from harvesting their address. Spammers do this with automated "bots" that constantly search the Web looking for e-mail addresses. Since you're a human being, not a bot, you can easily obtain the real address by removing the text that says "ThisisToPreventSpam-XYZ-RemoveThis." including the random number XYZ and the period at the end. For example, <whitten@ThisIsToPreventSpam-123-RemoveThis.despammed.com> would become <chris-(@)-interesting.com>.
