When we were told that by freedom we understood free enterprise, we did very little to dispel this monstrous falsehood. Wealth and economic well-being, we have asserted, are the fruits of freedom, while we should have been the first to know that this kind of happiness has been an unmixed blessing only in this country, and it is a minor blessing compared with the truly political freedoms, such as freedom of speech and thought, of assembly and association, even under the best conditions.

Hannah Arendt

When you come across with the ideas that you don’t like and even hate, do these three things: Be tolerant, be tolerant and be tolerant! Let them speak! Let the stupid and even the fools speak! Protecting freedom of expression under every circumstance is an honour for a man!

Mehmet Murat ildan

While people are struggling unhappily in the cities against the cruel authorities, a waterfall happily and cheerfully flows in the nature; there is happiness only if there is freedom!

Mehmet Murat ildan

While the State exists, there can be no freedom. When there is freedom there will be no State.

Lenin

Wild horses don't know the burning taste of the whips. Freedom protects us from the many evils!

Mehmet Murat ildan

With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech unsanctioned, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied - chains us all irrevocably.

Aaron Satie

Without freedom from the past, there is no freedom at all, because the mind is never new, fresh, innocent.

J. Krishnamurti

Without freedom, no art art lives only on the restraints it imposes on itself, and dies of all others.

Albert Camus

Woe to that nation whose literature is cut short by the intrusion of force. This is not merely interference with freedom of the press but the sealing up of a nation's heart, the excision of its memory.

Salman Rushdie

Clarence Darrow

You can protect your liberties in this world only by protecting the other man's freedom. You can be free only if I am free.

Clarence Darrow

You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.

Malcolm X

You have spent many lives and much treasure to bring freedom to many lands that were reluctant to receive it. And here you have a people who won it by themselves and need only the help to preserve it.

Corazn Cojuangco Aquino

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.

Frederick Buechner

Your life is the sum result of all the choices you make, both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself.

Robert F. Bennett
