Liberty Quoted

"The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion."
- Edmund Burke (1729-1797)
Speech at Country Meeting of Buckinghamshire, 1784

"Real liberty is neither found in despotism or the extremes of democracy, but in moderate governments."
- Alexander Hamilton
Constitutional Convention, June 26, 1787

"But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever."
-John Adams
To Abigail Adams, 1775
