Thomas Paine on putting a price on freedom

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, "The Crisis," December 23, 1776
