I feel your Paine

Thomas Paine's words are still true today: "These are the times that try men's souls."

There's only one little problem with that quote. There's a sentence following which few people know. It's time you did.

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 men and women.

Read The Crisis, by Thomas Paine.
