"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."

    That was quite beautiful - thank you. I haven't come across this before but I will make it a priority to find out more.

    Again, my thanks, and have a good week-end.

    Yes, thanks, it's a beautiful w/end - I hope you enjoy yours too.
