There, in her den, lay pompous luxury, Stretch'd out at length; no vice could boast such high And genial victories as she had won; Of which proud trophies there at large were shown, Besides small states and kingdoms ruined Those mighty monarchies that had o'erspread The spacious earth, and stretch'd their conquering arms From pole to pole, by her ensnaring charms Were quite consum'd; there lay imperial Rome, That vanquish'd all the world, by her o'ercome; Fetter'd was th' old Assyrian lion there; The Grecian leopard, and the Persian bear; With others numberless, lamenting by, Examples of the power of luxury.

Sam Snead

If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms.
