They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Other Benjamin Franklin quotes:
Do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made out of.
Out of adversity comes opportunity.
If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.
Practice makes perfect.
The busy man has few idle visitors; to the boiling pot the flies come not.
After crosses and losses men grow humbler and wiser.
A light purse is a heavy curse.
Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.
Being ignorant is not so much a shame, as being unwilling to learn.
There are many roads to success, but only one sure road to failure; and that is to try to please everyone else.
