"And knows not that the sword was given for this, that none need live a slave." This is from Book 4 of Lucan's "Belli Civilis" (Civil War). The complete quote is as follows: "Sed regna timentur ob ferrum et saeuis libertas uritur armis, ignorantque datos, ne quisquam seruiat, enses." Translated: "But tyranny is feared as dealing death; and Freedom's self is galled by ruthless arms; and knows not that the sword was given for this, that none need live a slave." Hope this helps.
