quote

“…”

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 seek neither your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains rest lightly upon you. May posterity forget that you were ever called our countrymen.

 

-Samuel Adams

quote

“…”

To you, all you have seems small: to me, all I have seems great. Your desire is insatiable, mine is satisfied. See children thrusting their hands into a narrow-necked jar, and striving to pull out the nuts and figs it contains: if they fill the hand, they cannot pull it out again, and then they fall to tears.— “Let go a few of them, and then you can draw out the rest!”— You, too, let your desire go! covet not many things, and you will obtain.

-Epictetus, XCV, The Golden Sayings of Epictetus
