When good people in any country cease their vigilance and struggle, then evil men prevail.
Pearl S. Buck
Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty; power is ever stealing from the many to the few.
Our Founders always wondered about how long it would last. The price of liberty is everlasting vigilance. You've got to be on your guard every minute or you will lose it.
The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance.
John Philpot Curran
While I'm optimistic about the direction the world is headed, generally, I think there is a need for constant vigilance and pressure on repressive governments.
May He who holds in his hands the destinies of nations, make you worthy of the favors He has bestowed, and enabled you with pure hearts and hands and sleepless vigilance, to guard and defend to the end of time, the great charge He has committed to your keeping.
J. Reuben Clark
