Quote from George Savile 

"When the People contend for their Liberty,
they seldom get anything by their Victory but new masters.
Power is so apt to be insolent and Liberty to be saucy,
that they are very seldom upon good Terms."

George Savile
(1633-1695) 1st Marquess of Halifax, English statesman, writer, and politician
Of Prerogative, Power and Liberty
