Author Quotes

It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.

I have never yet heard of a murderer who was not afraid of a ghost.

Evil prospers when good men do nothing.

The condition upon which God has given liberty to man is eternal vigilance.

Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.
