Is Not Easily Conquered....

Mr. Tom Paine
"These are the times that try men's souls.  The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their Country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and women.  

Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have the consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. 

What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; 'tis dearness only that gives everything its value..."

- Thomas Paine

("The American Crisis", December 19, 1776)

[If you will stand up for yourself, others will stand with you.]
