About the card:

Thomas Paine is perhaps the most important writer of the American Revolution, in his pamphlet Common Sense he convinced the American Colonists to go to war for their independence and in his later work, The Crisis, inspired the army's resolve.

The Battle of Lexington by William Barnes Wollen (1910)

"The heart that feels not now is dead; the blood of his children will curse his cowardice, who shrinks back at a time when a little might have saved the whole, and made them happy. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death."
