Quotes Suitable for Framing: Samuel Adams

 

 

The start of a new series.  First up from a fiery speech delivered by Samuel Adams at the State House in Philadelphia on August 1, 1776:

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!
