Natural Aristocracy

Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States and one of that Nation’s Founding Fathers, wrote:

There is a natural aristocracy among men, the grounds of which are virtue and talent.

What a powerful statement. It doesn’t matter what your history is – show the right character — may I suggest integrity and attitude as the most important elements — and learn the skills and you can be an aristocrat among your fellow men and women.
