Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun

"England is a Wise, Gallant and Brave nation; they love Liberty themselves, and therefore will always have a due regard to the same Spirit among others, but must needs despise a People who would tamely part with their Freedom as abject Slaves, and think them neither fit to be treated as good Neighbours or useful Subjects."  
(Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun, An Historical Account of the Ancient Rights and Power of the Parliament of Scotland, 1703)
