James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Walpole

  Oh, were I seated high as my ambition, / I’d place this naked foot on necks of monarchs.  2
  Resistance ought never to be thought of but when an utter subversion of the laws of the realm threatens the whole frame of our constitution, and no redress can otherwise be hoped for. It therefore does, and ought for ever, to stand in the eye and letter of the law as the highest offence.  3
