This one is really cool, and I hope you’ll like it! The actual quote is in Latin, and it reads, “Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem.” However, Thomas Jefferson used the quote in a letter to James Madison. It translates to,

“I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.”

Is that not awesome or what?
