The week is slipping by and with my wife still out of town, I’ve had a hard time remembering what day of the week I’m on!
July 3, so let’s feature one great quote from a writer of the Revolution, Thomas Paine. People just don’t talk this way anymore:
“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that 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 conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value.”
