freedom

This I believe: That the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I do not want art for a few, any more than education for a few, or freedom for a few.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security, will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Coersion, after all, merely captures man. Freedom captivates him.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is a strange fact that freedom and equality, the two basic ideas of democracy, are to some extent contradictory. Logically considered, freedom and equality are mutually exclusive, just as society and the individual are mutually exclusive.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We, and all others who believe in freedom as deeply as we do, would rather die on our feet than live on our knees.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The greatest blessing of our democracy is freedom. But in the last analysis, our only freedom is the freedom to discipline ourselves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Individuality is the aim of political liberty. By leaving to the citizen as much freedom of action and of being, as comports with order and the rights of others, the institutions render him truly a freeman. He is left to pursue his means of happiness in his own manner.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The freedom now desired by many is not freedom to do and dare but freedom from care and worry.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When people talk of the freedom of writing, speaking or thinking I cannot choose but laugh. No such thing ever existed. No such thing now exists; but I hope it will exist. But it must be hundreds of years after you and I shall write and speak no more.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The greatest enemy of individual freedom is the individual himself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

No cause is left but the most ancient of all, the one, in fact, that from the beginning of our history has determined the very existence of politics, the cause of freedom versus tyranny.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Man cannot be free if he does not know that he is subject to necessity, because his freedom is always won in his never wholly successful attempts to liberate himself from necessity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The first element of greatness is fundamental humbleness (this should not be confused with servility); the second is freedom from self; the third is intrepid courage, which, taken in its widest interpretation, generally goes with truth; and the fourth --the power to love --although I have put it last, is the rarest.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A nation which makes the final sacrifice for life and freedom does not get beaten.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I am truly free only when all human beings, men and women, are equally free. The freedom of other men, far from negating or limiting my freedom, is, on the contrary, its necessary premise and confirmation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Any honest examination of the national life proves how far we are from the standard of human freedom with which we began. The recovery of this standard demands of everyone who loves this country a hard look at himself, for the greatest achievements must begin somewhere, and they always begin with the person. If we are not capable of this examination, we may yet become one of the most distinguished and monumental failures in the history of nations.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The car as we know it is on the way out. To a large extent, I deplore its passing, for as a basically old-fashioned machine, it enshrines a basically old-fashioned idea: freedom. In terms of pollution, noise and human life, the price of that freedom may be high, but perhaps the car, by the very muddle and confusion it causes, may be holding back the remorseless spread of the regimented, electronic society.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In the last analysis, our only freedom is the freedom to discipline ourselves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Time misspent in youth is sometimes all the freedom one ever has.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Freedom is poetry, taking liberties with words, breaking the rules of normal speech, violating common sense. Freedom is violence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
None who have always been free can understand the terrible fascinating power of the hope of freedom to those who are not free.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Your life and my life flow into each other as wave flows into wave, and unless there is peace and joy and freedom for you, there can be no real peace or joy or freedom for me. To see reality--not as we expect it to be but as it is--is to see that unless we live for each other and in and through each other, we do not really live very satisfactorily; that there can really be life only where there really is, in just this sense, love.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The freedom that women were supposed to have found in the Sixties largely boiled down to easy contraception and abortion; things to make life easier for men, in fact.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If we wish to free ourselves from enslavement, we must choose freedom and the responsibility this entails.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Freedom suppressed and again regained bites with keener fangs than freedom never endangered.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What we want is not freedom but its appearances. It is for these simulacra that man has always striven. And since freedom, as has been said, is no more than a sensation, what difference is there between being free and believing ourselves free?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Tyranny destroys or strengthens the individual; freedom enervates him, until he becomes no more than a puppet. Man has more chances of saving himself by hell than by paradise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The progress of freedom depends more upon the maintenance of peace, the spread of commerce, and the diffusion of education, than upon the labors of cabinets and foreign offices.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

So far as discipline is concerned, freedom means not its absence but the use of higher and more rational forms as contrasted with those that are lower or less rational.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
People who exercise their embryonic freedom day after day, little by little, expand that freedom. People who do not will find that it withers until they are literally being lived. They are acting out scripts written by parents, associates and society.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside ourselves will affect us.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The embattled gates to equal rights indeed opened up for modern women, but I sometimes think to myself: That is not what I meant by freedom -- it is only social progress.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The traveler has reached the end of the journey! In the freedom of the infinite he is free from all sorrows, the fetters that bound him are thrown away, and the burning fever of life is no more.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Men who want to support women in our struggle for freedom and justice should understand that it is not terrifically important to us that they learn to cry; it is important to us that they stop the crimes of violence against us.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

For what avail the plough or sail, Or land or life, if freedom fail?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing is more disgusting than the crowing about liberty by slaves, as most men are, and the flippant mistaking for freedom of some paper preamble like a Declaration of Independence, or the statute right to vote, by those who have never dared to think or to act.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Is freedom anything else than the right to live as we wish? Nothing else.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
