"The poorest man may in his cottage,
bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown.
It may be frail, its roof may shake;
the wind may blow through it;
the storm may enter; the rain may enter;
but the King of England may not enter;
all his force dares not cross the threshold
of the ruined tenement."

William Pitt
(1708-1778) First Earl of Chatham, English statesman and orator
Speech in the House of Lords, in opposition to Excise Bill on perry and cider, 1763
