Compromising on Liberty is a loss for everyone, like taking a little poison.

Compromising on liberty is a loss for everyone. ¬†Compromising on freedom is like saying “no” to taking a dose poison, but then deciding to take just a little poison each time compromise is required. ¬†The poison will kill you eventually, it will just take more time than one full dose to start. ¬†Poisoning the tree of liberty will kill freedom, just slower than an ax.
