Which of these founding fathers said these quotes?

"I cannot live without books"

"Neither my father or mother, grandfather or grandmother, great grandfather or great grandmother, nor any other relation that I know of, or care a farthing for, has been in England these one hundred and fifty years; so that you see I have not one drop of blood in my veins but what is American"

"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."

"all men are created equal"

"a crisis had arrived which was to decide whether the American experiment was to be a blessing to the world, or to blast for ever the hopes which the republican cause had inspired."

"Trial by jury in civil cases is as essential to secure the liberty of the people as any one of the pre-existent rights of nature."

"It is of great importance in a republic not only to guard the society against the oppression of its rulers, but to guard one part of the society against the injustice of the other part... In a society under the forms of which the stronger faction can readily unite and oppress the weaker, anarchy may as truly be said to reign as in a state of nature, where the weaker individual is not secured against the violence of the stronger."
