"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the
active. The condition 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."
-- John Philpot Curran: Speech upon the Right of Election, 1790.
(Speeches. Dublin, 1808.)
