In Freedom’s Cause

In view of the political campainges going on I thought this quote highly appropriate:

“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crises, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquored; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as Freedom should not be highly rated.”

~Thomas Paine
