What is Liberty?

Liberty, in its genuine sense, is security to enjoy the effects of our honest industry and labors, in a free and mild government, and personal security from all illegal restraints.

Richard Henry Lee, 1787, cited by Clarence B. Carson, A Basic History of the United States, Vol. 2: The Beginning of the Republic 1775-1825, pg.105
