Samuel Adams speech at the Philadelphia State House on August 1, 1776.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."
“In the beginning of a change, the Patriot is a scarce man, Brave, Hated, and Scorned. When his cause succeeds however,the timid join him, For then it costs nothing to be a Patriot.” ~ Mark Twain
"I am sick and tired of people who call you unpatriotic if you debate this administration's policies. We are Americans and have the right to participate and debate any administration." ~ Hillary Clinton
"Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you. He is training with minimal food or water, in austere conditions, training day and night. The only thing clean on him is his weapon and he made his web gear. He doesn't worry about what workout to do - his ruck weighs what it weighs, his runs end when the enemy stops chasing him. This True Believer is not concerned about 'how hard it is;' he knows either he wins or dies. He doesn't go home at 1700, he is home.
He knows only The Cause.
Still want to quit?"
He who knows not, knows that he knows not is a fool – shun him.
He who knows not, knows not that he knows not is a child – teach him..
He who knows and knows not that he knows, is asleep – wake him.
He who knows and knows that he knows, is wise – follow him.
