"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. Thank you yet again for a small period of tranquility and beauty in this awful world, CE - I missed your Sunday Reflection, but this has made up for it beautifully.

  2. Hello Opsimath - I get quite despondent too about the lack of will on the part of our elected reps to really tackle the root problems - in many ways they just exacerbate things.

    I love Chopin - this came from the film I saw over the w/end - a film that will stay with me for a long time and which I found as harrowing as Schindler's List.
