"No man can suffer too much,
and no man can fall too soon,
if he suffer or if he fall
in defense of the liberties and
Constitution of his country."
Daniel Webster
(1782-1852) US Senator

Reader comments about this quote:
Here is your answer Mike as to why I percist on this site. "The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on CERTAIN occasions. It will OFTEN be exercised when WRONG but better than not at all." I don't mind taking a few hits if I can have the opportunity to set you and Archer straight who OFTEN are WRONG. It may be just a drop in the bucket but it is a start "in defense of the liberties and Constitution" of our country. I will do my part.

    Amen Mr Webster. There is little else worth dying or fighting for.

    Bruce, while your feedback is appreciated, please confine your comments to the quotes. Lately you have been leaving more comments than anyone else (sometimes anonymously as well as by name), not rating quotes, and debating other's comments. We wish to keep the quote comments related to the quotes. Thank you.

    I absolutely agree with the quote. Bruce, keep rating, then opining, and then straighten me out.

    If only the President, Congress, and the Courts shared this sentiment. To 'defend the country' at the expense of the Bill of Rights is a sham.

    Editor, Liberty Quotes- Good point in spite of the fact that I am as guilty as anyone in this matter.
