"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

  2. It came from the British Film Institute iirc. I bet they still complained about traffic congestion though!

    @13th spitfire - I can help, in 1903 women still had no voting rights, homosexuality was punished by imprisonment, and we still hadn't discovered penicillin
