If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of  
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an  
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps

the possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself  
of it.            - Thomas Jefferson
