sunshine patriots

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 she that stands up now
deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

Tyranny
like Hell
is not easily conquered, yet we have this consolation with us:
that the harder the conflict
the more glorious the triumph.

What we obtain too cheap
we esteem too lightly:
it is dearness
only
that gives every thing its value.
