John Adams on the loss of Liberty

Posted on

quote of the wk blue sm‎”Cities may be rebuilt, and a people, reduced to poverty, may acquire fresh property. But a constitution of government, once changed from freedom, can never be re stored. Liberty once lost, is lost forever. When the people once surrender their share in the Legislature, and their right of defending the limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every encroachment upon them, they can never regain it.”

John Adams – Letter to Abigail Adams (excerpt); Philadelphia, July 7th, 1775.
