The two that grab me the most are :

Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.

and: America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

But they're all good.

Have a good evening, Patty.
