Title
"What we obtain too cheaply we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything 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 American Crisis No. 1, 1776. From the series Great Ideas of Western Man.
