The Words of Our Founding Fathers, Samuel Adams Saturday 2

"A general dissolution of the principles and manners will more surely over throw the liberties of Americathan the whole force of the common enemy...While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued;but once they lose their virtue,they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader... If virtue and knowledge are diffused among the people,they will never be enslaved. This will be their great security." -Samuel Adams
