Patrick Henry on the Bible

Those who signed the Declaration of Independence knew that if the Revolution did not succeed, they would die as traitors. On another occasion, Patrick Henry reportedly held up his Bible and said,

This book is worth all the other books which have ever been printed, and it has been my misfortune that I have never found time to read it with the proper attention and feeling till lately. I trust in the mercy of heaven that it is not yet too late.
