Lick the hand the feeds you

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
Samuel Adams
Speech at the Philadelphia State House
August 1, 1776

Samuel Adams
September 27, 1722 - October 2, 1803
