Quia quamdiu Centum ex nobis viui remanserint, nuncquam Anglorum dominio aliquatenus volumus subiugari. Non enim propter gloriam, diuicias aut honores pugnamus set propter libertatem solummodo quam Nemo bonus nisi simul cum vita amittit.
– Declaratio Arbroathis / Declaration of Arbroath.

A certain Douenaldus Cambell was a signatory to this 1320 declaration of Scottish independence addressed by the Scots nobles to Pope John XXII.
The above quote in English:
“As long as only one hundred of us remain alive, we will never on any conditions be brought under English rule. For we fight not for glory, nor riches, nor for honours, but for Freedom alone, which no good man gives up except with his life.”
