Quote from Patrick Henry,

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
Suspect every one who approaches that jewel.
Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined....
O sir, we  should have fine times, indeed, if to punish tyrants,
it were only sufficient to assemble the people!"


Patrick Henry (more quotes by Patrick Henry or books by/about Patrick Henry)

(1736-1799) US Founding Father
