“There are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that now stands it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflic, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearneww only that gives everything its value Heavan knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celetial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.” (Paine, The American Crisis, Number 1)
