THOMAS JEFFERSON LEADERSHIP   Heart: If our country, when pressed with wrongs at the point of the bayonet , had been governed by its heads instead of its hearts, where should we have been now? Hanging on a gallows as high as Hamans. You began to calculate & to compare wealth and numbers: we threw up a few pulsations of our warmest blood; [...]

THOMAS JEFFERSON LEADERSHIP   Heart: A few facts .. to prove to you that nature has not organized you for our moral direction. When the poor wearied souldier whom we overtook at Chickahomony with his pack on his back, begged us to let him get up behind our chariot, you began to calculate that the road was full of souldiers, & that if all [...]

THOMAS JEFFERSON LEADERSHIP Heart: But let us now try the virtues of your mathematical balance, & as you have put into one scale the burthen of friendship, let me put its comforts into the other. When languishing then under disease, how grateful is the solace of our friends! How are we penetrated with their assiduities & attentions! [...]

Who exactly is in charge here? Part 11A (OR It is my pleasure to share another’s pain.)

THOMAS JEFFERSON LEADERSHIP   Heart. And what more sublime delight than to mingle tears with one whom the hand of heaven hath smitten! To watch over the bed of sickness, & to beguile its tedious & its painful moments! To share our bread with one to whom misfortune has left none! This world abounds indeed with misery: to lighten its [...]

Who exactly is in charge here? Part 10 (OR Is life only a calculated balancing act?)

THOMAS JEFFERSON LEADERSHIP Head ... Everything in this world is a matter of calculation ... Put into one scale the pleasures which any object may offer; but put fairly into the other the pains which are to follow, & see which preponderates ... The art of life is the art of avoiding pain: & he is the best pilot who steers clearest of [...]

Who exactly is in charge here? Part 8 (OR What characterizes a healthy society?)

THOMAS JEFFERSON LEADERSHIP Head. True, you & I know this, but your friends do not know it. Heart. But they are sensible people who think for themselves. They will ask of impartial foreigners who have been among us whether they saw or heard on the spot any instances of anarchy ... opening rivers, digging navigable canals, making roads, [...]

THOMAS JEFFERSON LEADERSHIP Head. ... another point. When you consider the character which is given of our country by the lying newspapers of ... ... that all Europe is made to believe we are a lawless banditti, in a state of absolute anarchy, cutting one anothers throats, & plundering without distinction, how can you expect that any [...]

Who exactly is in charge here? Part 7

THOMAS JEFFERSON LEADERSHIP Head. Very well. Suppose then they come back. They are to stay two months, & when these are expired, what is to follow? Perhaps you flatter yourself they may come to America? Heart. God only knows what is to happen. I see nothing impossible in that supposition. And I see things wonderfully contrived sometimes to [...]

THOMAS JEFFERSON LEADERSHIP Head. But in the meantime see what you suffer: & their return too depends on so many circumstances that if you had a grain of prudence you would not count upon it. Upon the whole it is improbable & therefore you should abandon the idea of ever seeing them again. Heart. May heaven abandon me if I [...]

THOMAS JEFFERSON LEADERSHIP Who exactly is in charge here? Part 5 Posted on June 5, 2015 by Thomas Jefferson Leadership Head. Thou art the most incorrigible of all the beings …!
