Wisdom, Duty, and Action — John Dickinson

Liberty Letters Quote of the Day, John Dickinson

It certainly is not a wise man, who folds his arms, and reposes himself at home, viewing with unconcern, the flames that have invaded his neighbors house, without using any endeavors to extinguish them. … When the slightest point, touching the freedom, of one colony, is agitated, I earnestly wish that all the rest may, with equal ardor, support their sister.
