Founders' Daily Quote: 1 July 2008

"Liberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood." [Emphasis mine.]

--John Adams (A Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law, 1765).
