Quote of the day

27 December 2011

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

Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.

~Thomas Paine,
“The American Crisis, No. I,”
Pennsylvania Journal, December 19, 1776
