Thomas Paine Said...

Chasing vistors links usually brings something interesting. From a speech at a change of command on the USS BULKELEY, a quote from Thomas Paine:
"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."
Fine words, for yesterday, today and the future...
