Famous Quote from John Philpot Curran 

"It is the common fate of the indolent
to see their rights become prey to the active.
The conditions upon which God
hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance;
which condition if he break, servitude is at once the
consequence of his crime, and the punishment of his guilt."
