That religion, or the duty which we owe to our Creator, and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence; and therefore all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of the conscience; and it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity towards each other.More Patrick Henry quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Human nature will never part with power. Look for an example of a voluntary relinquishment of power from one end of the globe to another - you will find none.More Patrick Henry quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of Nature has placed in our power... the battle, sir, is not to the strong alone it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.More Patrick Henry quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.More Patrick Henry quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Fear is the passion of slaves.More Patrick Henry quotes [07/12/2011 02:07:52]
