Quote of the Week; John Adams

“Be it remembered that liberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasures and their blood…Let it be known that British liberties are not the grants of princes or parliments…that many of our rights are inherent and essential…established even before Parliment existed…Let us recollect and impress upon our souls the view and ends of our immediate forefathers..(the Puritans), Their amazing fortitude, their bitter sufferings…the civil and religious principles that…contantly supplied them and carried them through all hardships with patience and resignation..which conquered all discouragements.”  John Adams
