Quote from Robert Burns

Robert BurnsI can't say I am altogether at my ease when I see anywhere in my path that meagre, squalid, famine-faced spectre, poverty; attended as he always is, by iron-fisted oppression, and leering contempt; but I have sturdily withstood his buffetings many a hard-laboured day already, and still my motto is—I DARE! (Letter to Margaret Chalmers, 19-Dec-1787)
