lyrics

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace
We ask not your counsels or arms
Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen

It does not take a majority to prevail ... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men

All might be free if they valued freedom, and defended it as they should

The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending against all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks

Our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty

Nil desperandum -- Never Despair...All are not dead; and where there is a spark of patriotic fire, we will rekindle it
