Quite a few years ago I heard an Australian being quoted as saying “I’d rather live in a nation founded by convicts than Puritans.”
Three related questions. 
Who said it? 
What was the exacting wording?
Is this actually a common saying in Australia instead of one that should be attributed to a specific individual. The closest I’ve found are related sentiments of Stella Maria Miles Franklin.
