    I always liked:

    "A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor and bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

    and a close second:

    "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it."

    There is no evidence that this quote was ever said by Thomas Jefferson. Although it is attributed to him very often, no where is it actually documented.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
