John Philpot Curran

John Philpot Curran was a statesman, lawyer and judge. He is best known for his quote, generally repeated as "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty".[1]


  • "It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt."[2]
