Quote of the day–Benjamin Franklin

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Benjamin Franklin
[Yeah, I know. Everyone has heard this one before. That is most of the reason I have never used it directly before. Today is special however. Check out my next post, Runnin’ With the Devil, people compromised with the Devil to gain temporary “safety” and the ink hasn’t dried before they are pushing for the “next step”.–Joe]


One thought on “Quote of the day–Benjamin Franklin

  1. But isn’t it far better to be seen as “moderate” by your contemporaries, so as to minimize any discomfort?

    Franklin was obviously a “divisive” “extremist”.
