Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!

Patrick Henry

“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains or slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take but as for me; give me liberty or give me death!” – Patrick Henry (Lawyer, patriot, orator, symbol of the American struggle for liberty and justice for all, 1736-1799)
