Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“I weep for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of its “successful experiment” that corruption has been imputed to many members of the House of Representatives, and the rights of the people have been bartered for promises of office.”     Andrew Jackson

Quotes To Ponder

by Adam Selene

Freedom is not merely the opportunity to do as one pleases; neither is it merely the opportunity to choose between set alternatives. Freedom is, first of all, the chance to formulate the available choices, to argue over them — and then, the opportunity to choose.

– C. Wright Mills

When liberty is taken away by force it can be restored by force. When it is relinquished voluntarily by default it can never be recovered.

– Dorothy Thompson
