Transcript of Thomas Paine - Crisis No. 1

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 their country; but he that stands 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. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.

Thomas Paine
"Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared, that she has a right (not only to tax) but "to bind us in all cases whatsoever," and if being bound in that manner is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. "
“Not all treasures of the world, so far as I believe, could have induced me to support an offensive war, for I think it murder; but if a thief breaks into my house, burns and destroys my property, and kills or threatens to kill me or those that are in it, and to ‘bind me in all cases whatsoever’ to his absolute will, am I to suffer it?”
Pathos
"Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared, that she has a right (not only to tax) but "to bind us in all cases whatsoever," and if being bound in that manner is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. "
Ethos
“my secret opinion has ever been, and still is, that God Almighty will not give up a people to military destruction, or leave them unsupportedly to perish”
"Say not, that thousands are gone, turn out your tens of thousands; throw not the bur hen of the day upon Providence, but 'show your faith by your works,' that God may bless you. "

“Not all treasures of the world, so far as I believe, could have induced me to support an offensive war, for I think it murder; but if a
thief breaks into my house, burns and destroys my property, and kills or threatens to kill me or those that are in it
, and to ‘bind me in all cases whatsoever’ to his absolute will, am I to suffer it
?


“It is surprising to see how rapidly a panic will sometimes run through a country.
All nations and ages
have been subject to them.”
“Neither have I so much of the
infidel
in me as to suppose that He has relinquished the government of the world, and given us up to the
devils;
and as I do not, I cannot see on what grounds the king of
Britain
can look up to heaven for help against us:
a common
murderer
, a highwayman, or a
housebreaker
, has as good as pretense as he.”

“The
heart that feels not now is dead
;
the blood of his children will curse his cowardice
who shrinks back at a time when a little might have saved the whole, and made them happy.”
“The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country, but
he that stands it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman
.”

as
little superstition in me as any man living…”
“...and in the fourteenth century the whole English army after ravaging the kingdom of France was driven back
like
men petrified with fear…”
“My own line of reasoning is to myself
as
straight and clear as a ray of light.”
“Britain has trembled
like
an ague at the report of a French fleet of flat-bottomed boats.”
“...Would that heaven might inspire some Jersey maid to spirit up her countrymen, and save her fair fellow sufferers from ravage and ravishment!”
“But their peculiar advantage is, that they[panics] are the
touchstones of sincerity and hypocrisy
and bring things and men to light, which might otherwise have lain forever undiscovered.”
“Tyranny like
hell
is not easily conquered…”
“…He has relinquished the government of the world, and given us up to the
devils
; and as I do not, I cannot see on what grounds the king of Britain can look up to
heaven
for help against us.”


All
that Howe has been doing for this month past is rather a ravage than a conquest”
“...and this brave exploit was performed by a few broken forces collected and headed by a woman,
Joan of Arc
.”

Britain

tyranny, has declared that
she
has a right (not only to tax) by “to bend us in all cases whatsoever”, and if being bound in that manner is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth.”
