Those who give up liberty to secure safety deserve neither the liberty nor the safety.

that's right. but what's an appropriate part of your liberty you can spend in order to live safely? the weapon laws of the USA are liberal, therefore you hear in the news all the time, that someone shot another. one's safety for another's liberty. the NSA observes thousands of people and justifies this acting with war against this and that. so, when do you start to give up liberty or safety? ;-)

Cuándo la prudencia es en todas partes, el valor es en ninguna parte.

Quand la prudence est partout, le courage n'est nulle part.

When cautiousness is everywhere, courage is no where

You produced a near word for word translation. English is not a word for word translation from Spanish, it is a separate language with it's own structure. Although what you wrote is technically English, it is not how an English speaker would say it. If you cannot recognize how strange your sentence sounds in English then you should be practicing your English some more. Also your question should be "Why is 'it' wrong?"

"Security" works just as well, if not better, than "safety" in this sentence.
