Jefferson - Ten Rules of Conduct

This illustration, c 1935 by Bernhardt Wall, depicts the Ten Commandments (or “Decalogue”) of Thomas Jefferson.  These “Ten Rules of Conduct” include:

Never spend your money before you have it

Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly

When angry, count ten before you speak; if very angry, a hundred.
