"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."

  1. Very nice - thank you. I don't think I've heard this in years and it brought back some lovely memories of more happy times.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  2. Loverly GV, what with scunnert and you piping the Christmas choral work I might get all seasonal. :-)

    Pax vobiscum

  3. It's wonderfully traditional isn't it Opsimath? You can almost smell the mince pies and see the school nativity play again.

    Hi Incoming - yes, why not? It'll be business as usual before long and the rest of the year is loaded with cynicism - it's nice to set aside a minute or two of tranquillity.
