Memorable Quotes: Thomas Paine

”These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the
sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their
country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of
man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered..” Thomas Paine 1776

    Paine was brilliant, but a bit of cowardly, sneaky hit-and-run writer and ideologist, always running away from the big kids when he’d just put a spoke in their wheels crying “Bully!” and hiding behind the curtains.

    Great quote. Shame it’s us he’s speaking about!
