Danger and Deliverance Advance Together

May 14, 2013

It is distressing to see an enemy advancing into a country, but it is the only place in which we can beat them, and in which we have always beaten them, whenever they made the attempt. The nearer any disease approaches to a crisis, the nearer it is to a cure. Danger and deliverance make their advances together, and it is only the last push, in which one or the other takes the lead. ~ Thomas Paine, The American Crisis (September 12, 1777)
