“I prefer dangerous liberty over peaceful slavery” – Thomas Jefferson*

*From http://www.monticello.org : This is actually a translation of a Latin phrase that Thomas Jefferson used: Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem.

It has also been translated as, “I prefer the tumult of liberty to the quiet of servitude.”
