Occupy Wall Street: Thomas Paine & Ron Crawford Capture the Moment

Words by Thomas Paine — Drawings by Ron Crawford..

“These are the times that try men’s souls…

“The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.”

“Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”

    “Action from principle — the perception and the performance of right — changes things and relations; it is essentially revolutionary, and does not consist wholly with anything which was. It not only divides states and churches, it divides families; ay, it divides the individual, separating the diabolical in him from the divine.” — Henry David Thoreau “Civil Disobedience”
