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 his country; but he that stands it 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 to cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. 

- T. Paine 1776
