• The mind once enlightened cannot again become dark

    Thomas Paine
  • Independence is my happiness, and I view things as they are, without regard to place or person; my country is the world, and my religion is to do good

    Thomas Paine
  • 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
  • When it can be said by any country in the world, my poor are happy, neither ignorance nor distress is to be found among them, my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars, the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive, the rational world is my friend because I am the friend of happiness. When these things can be said, then may that country boast its constitution and government. Independence is my happiness, the world is my country and my religion is to do good

    Thomas Paine
  • It is from the Bible that man has learned cruelty, rapine, and murder; for the belief of a cruel God makes a cruel man

    Thomas Paine
