Land is not, and cannot be, property in the sense in which movable things are property. Every human being born into this planet must live upon the land if he lives at all. He did not ask to be born, and, being born, room must be found for him. The land in any country is really the property of the nation which occupies it.
— J. A. FROUDE, Ireland, Nineteenth Century, September, 1880, p. 362.
