There's never been equality for me, Nor freedom in this 'homeland of the free.

Langston Hughes

They do not leave home without American Express. ... Blame the moral carelessness that parents pass off as the gift of freedom as they cut their children loose like colorful kites and wish them an exciting flight.

Roger Rosenblatt

They have exiled me now from their society and I am pleased, because humanity does not exile except the one whose noble spirit rebels against despotism and oppression. He who does not prefer exile to slavery is not free by any measure of freedom, truth and duty.

This institution will be based upon the illimitable freedom of the human mind. For here we are not afraid to follow truth wherever it may lead, nor to tolerate any error so long as reason is left free to combat it.

Thomas Jefferson

Those ignoramuses who think that birds are happy in their cages know not a single thing about freedom!

Mehmet Murat ildan

Those who profess to favor freedom, yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without planting up the ground. They want rain without thunder or lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. The struggle may not be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will.

Frederick Douglas

Those who would deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, cannot long retain it.

Abraham Lincoln

Thou canst not touch the freedom of my mind.

John Milton

To be listened to is, generally speaking, a nearly unique experience for most people. It is enormously stimulating.

Man clamors for the freedom to express himself and for knowing that he counts. But once offered these conditions, he becomes frigthened.

Robert C. Murphy

True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

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.

Emil Cioran

Ultimately we know deeply that the other side of every fear is a freedom.

Marilyn Ferguson

Ultimately we know deeply that the other side of fear is a freedom.

Marilyn Ferguson

Until one nation ceases its attempts to dominate another, there will never be true freedom. Until one religion relinquishes its quest to prove its god superior to that of another, there shall never be world peace. We will never truly prosper or experience lasting harmony, until we refrain from preaching the gospel of our own moral values and our personal preferences by forcing it upon others.

Anthon St Maarten

Until you lose your reputation, you never realize what a burden it was or what freedom really is.
