In my town, people who are not willing to water enough are condemned to have their lawn taken over by brush. Grass needs more than 20 inches of water per year if the growing season is 52 weeks.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin 1775
Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power.
Benjamin Franklin Poor Richard's Almanac1738
