A Fire that Cannot be Extinguished

LIBERTY LETTERS, DANIEL WEBSTER

If the true spark of religious and civil liberty be kindled, it will burn. Human agency cannot extinguish it. Like the earth’s central fire, it may be smothered for a time; the ocean may overwhelm it; mountains may press down; but its inherent and unconquerable force will heave both the ocean and the land, and at some time or other, the volcano will break out and flame up to heaven.
