"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. Thanks for sharing my favorite lines by Richard Neville "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 audio track is cool.

  2. Hi Dominique, glad you liked the audio - unmistakeable isn't it.

    The quote comes from Samuel Adams, an 18thC American revolutionary - one of the organisers of the Boston Tea Party.
