Benjamin Franklin Quote

Those who live under arbitrary power do...approve of liberty, and wish for it; they almost despair of recovering it...Hence it is a common observation...that our cause is the cause of mankind, and that we are fighting for their liberty in defending our own. It is a glorious task assigned us by Providence; which has, I trust, given us spirit and virtue equal to it, and will at last crown it with success.
