First Principles: The Person Who Will Submit To Wear A Shackle, Condemns the Noblest Gift of Heaven and Impiously Affronts the God That Made Us Free

“The man who meanly will submit to wear a shackle, condemns the noblest gift of heaven, and impiously affronts the God that made him free. … Ease and prosperity (though pleasing for a day) have often sunk a people into effeminacy and sloth. … Our country is in danger, but not to be despaired of. Our enemies are numerous and powerful; but we have many friends, determining to be free, and heaven and earth will aid the resolution. On you depend the fortunes of America. You are to decide the important question, on which rest the happiness and liberty of millions yet unborn. Act worthy of yourselves.” – Dr. Joseph Warren
