Quote from Thomas Jefferson 

"God who gave us life gave us liberty.
And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure
if we have removed their only firm basis:
a conviction in the minds of men
that these liberties are the gift of God?
That they are not to be violated but with His wrath?
Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just;
that His justice cannot sleep forever."
