What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value.
Thomas Paine

I remember reading this quote coupled with one from, I think Benjamin Franklin, about liberty being a precious thing to esteem highly. Unfortunately I have not been able to find that quote.

At any rate, it is that which we fight for which we value most, and it is the thing that we have never had that we strive to achieve.

And once in a while we achieve it.

Alas, I am but a poor scribbler when trying to express lofty thoughts. Go here instead and you will know what I mean, even though I cannot adequately express it.

And Nikki; welcome home. I'm glad you made it.
