The little I know of it has not served to raise my opinion of what is vulgarly called the ''Monied Interest;'' I mean, that blood-sucker, that muckworm, that calls itself ''the friend of government.''
~ William Pitt The Elder Chatham - [Finance]
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 cannot enter! -- all his forces dare not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement!
