“Oaths of allegiance and other official oaths are still taken throughout Europe, but experience shows that in time of revolution they are violated with little scruple, and in the case of the United Kingdom it is doubtful whether they have any more practical value than, if so much as, simple declarations.”
Encyclopedia Brittanica, Vol. 17, p. 702, 9th Edition.


If you can read, you ought to understand ; if you can write, you ought to know something ; if you can believe, you ought to comprehend ; if you desire a thing you will have take it; if you claim it you will not get it; and if you are experienced you ought to be useful to others.
