Thomas Jefferson - Most Bad Government has grown out of Too Much...

Quote Text: 

Most Bad Government has grown out of Too Much Government.

Explanation: 

According to the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, the above quote is a variation on this quote:

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

That quote is not found Thomas Jefferson, but from a speech given by John Sharp Williams about Thomas Jefferson which is likely the source of the confusion.
