What is the original sentence of franklin's famous saying? 请问这句话的原话是怎么样的? Suddendly I remember this sentence,because i suddenly remember the TV series the 4400, I learn it from an old lady, but i can't speak out the original whole sentence, it's somthing like this : The one who exchange security with freedom, he is not deserved to get both of them. But I am not sure, what did he said? 弗兰克林的这句名言原话是怎么说的? 那些为了得到安全的而放弃自由的人,既不能得到自由也不配得到安全。

A popular version of the quote is: "The man who trades freedom for security does not deserve nor will he ever receive either." However, the origin of the quote is controversial. See here for more information: http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Benjamin_Franklin
