Samuel Adams Quotes


Mankind are governed more by their feelings than by reason.

Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: First a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can

It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds

Our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty

The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms

The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on Earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but only to have the law of nature for his rule

We have this day restored the Sovereign to Whom all men ought to be obedient. He reigns in heaven and from the rising to the setting of the sun, let His kingdom come

A nation of shopkeepers are very seldom so disinterested

Driven from every other corner of the earth, freedom of thought and the right of private judgment in matters of conscience direct their course to this in happy country as their last asylum

We cannot make events. Our business is wisely to improve them
