Samuel Adams

“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 arms. Crouch down and lick the hands, which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
(speech at the Philadelphia State House, August 1, 1776)

“It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds..” – The Federalist, No. 29
