My Favorite List of Wisdom from Scholar Thomas Jefferson, Founding Father (For today’s living)
Profound Influence of Thomas Jefferson on America, Past to Present
Profound influence of Thomas Jefferson to the birth & emergence of America is well-known. Innovation 1776 had a profound influence of Jefferson's scholarly mind. My favorite Jefferson quotes is an introduction to the scholarly wisdom of Thomas Jefferson and tell a story of the culture where he grew up at Old Virginia.
I have visited Monticello, his home in later years near Charlottesville, VA many times. Each time, I have been inspired with the amazing innovative mind of Thomas Jefferson.
Jefferson, His Mentors & Teacher
From Williamsburg at Coastal VA to Mountain Frontier of Appalachia
I am still researching the childhood years & his relationship with other great minds of Innovation 1776, particularly the mentorship provided to him by Ben Franklin. His contribution & close relationship with George Washington throughout most of his life is worthy of special note. However, the political differences leading to lose of personal friendship toward end of Washington's life is a sad legacy .
But returning to Jefferson's younger days at Williamsburg,Va & his inspiration from a teacher, Professor William Small to science & spirit of innovation is truly a inspiring story.
Mentor & teacher of Thomas Jefferson, Dr. William Small, a physician later returned to England, with a letter of introduction from Ben Franklin. Small became a member of the amazing Lunar Society of Birmingham, a dinning club for inventors, scientists & scholars.
Lunar Society of Birmingham, England is another amazing story that profoundly influenced later generations in America , with a link to both innovative & practical minded Founding Fathers, Ben Franklin & Thomas Jefferson.
