A quote I'm looking for...

Hi everyone,

There is a quote I have been looking for, and I can't seem to think of the right key words for even google, but it goes something like this:

Patriots are unpopular and do the tough things - then everyone else eventually follows because there is little risk to them.

Does anyone know what quote I am searching for?

Thank you!

Ahh that's a good one, Mark Twain

“In the beginning of a change, the Patriot is a scarce man, Brave, Hated, and Scorned. When his cause succeeds however,the timid join him, For then it costs nothing to be a Patriot.”

“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.” – Dresden James

History is repeating itself.

it is both good and sad to know that others have walked in our shoes...
someone asked Ron Paul how he keeps going at a speech I was at. his answer? "low expectations"
carry on!

Ahhh....

Nice to have that resolved in my head. You see, some of my relatives are having a hard time now that Barack Obama was re-elected. They voted for Gary Johnson, and feel afraid and a bit of regret - just torn. I wanted to share this quote with them.

Thanks for responding so quickly! I knew it wouldn't take long!
