Give me Liberty or give me Death

I either never knew it, or it had simply been a long time since I have read the whole thing, but the full quote of Patrick Henry's famous line is even more striking when you read the whole thing:

"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!"

It is also as important now as ever.
