Wisdom From the Great American Patriot Patrick Henry

“I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.” –American Patriot, Patrick Henry

Here are more quotes from the great American:

1. “Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.”

2. “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government – lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”

3. “For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and to provide for it.”

4. “The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.”

5. “It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains.”

6 “Liberty, the greatest of all earthly blessings – give us that precious jewel and you may take everything else!”
