Quoted from personal historical research paper (Hughes) ....(...john Locke helped pave the way for Enlightenment through inspiring other authors to follow his lead. Simply stated Locke believed, "Each man has a natural right to life, liberty, and property, and therefore a natural obligation to respect the life, liberty, and property of every other man." (Francis/Clark, 1979)

This aspect of life, liberty and property helped lead the wording of the Constitution.

in the declaration Tomas Jefferson said "We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" that was an idea of John Locke an that was just a little piece of the declaration, pretty much 1/3 of its his ideas.

How did Hobbes influence the constitution?

Thomas Hobbes's ideas on the necessity of a strong centralized government and the social contract theory influenced the framers of the U.S. Constitution. The concept of a government being created by an agreement among individuals to secure their rights and maintain order is reflected in the Constitution's structure and principles. Hobbes's emphasis on the need for a sovereign authority to prevent chaos and protect citizens' liberty is seen in the Constitution's establishment of a system of checks and balances and the rule of law.
