quote

“…”

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 seek neither your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains rest lightly upon you. May posterity forget that you were ever called our countrymen.

 

-Samuel Adams

No one would be foolish enough to choose war over peace–in peace sons bury their fathers, but in war fathers bury their sons.

quote

“…”

We have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned – we have remonstrated – we have supplicated. … Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded. … If we wish to be free … we must fight! … There is no retreat, but in submission and slavery! … Gentlemen may cry, peace, peace – but there is no peace. The war is actually begun.

–Patrick Henry
