Ben Franklin:

        The man who would trade a bit of liberty
        for a bit of security deserves neither
        liberty nor security

Probably still not exactly correct, it may have
been "a little" instead of "a bit". Only certain
source I can think of is the musical "1776" and
they probably mangled the original line to make
it more stage-worthy.
