Founding Quotes of Note III

"Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say: 'What should be the reward of such sacrifices?'. . .If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsel or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!"

--Samuel Adams
