"Non enim propter gloriam, diuicias aut honores
pugnamus set propter libertatem solummodo quam
Nemo bonus nisi simul cum vita amitti"
(The Declaration of Arbroath is a declaration of Scottish independence, made in 1320. It is in the form of a letter in Latin submitted to Pope John XXII, dated 6 April 1320, intended to confirm Scotland's status as an independent, sovereign state and defending Scotland's right to use military action when unjustly attacked.)
PS, it won't be nostalgic or romantic
