Description:Quotes[ edit ] It is not unfrequent to hear men declaim loudly upon liberty , who, if we may judge by the whole tenor of their actions , mean nothing else by it but their own liberty, — to oppress without control or the restraint of laws all who are poorer or weaker than themselves. The truth is, all might be free if they valued freedom , and defended it as they ought. The liberties of our Country , the freedom of our civil constitution are worth defending at all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attack. Instead of sitting down satisfied with the efforts we have already made, which is the wish of our enemies , the necessity of the times , more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude , and perseverance. Mankind are governed more by their feelings than by reason.
