"When you see this on your flist, quote some of the Bard.... "

This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,--
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.

"King Richard II", Act 2 scene 1

The main reason I remember this one is because of Leslie Howard's performance of Sr. Percy Blakney in The Scarlet Pimpernel
