321 Quote Me / Freedom

Instead of picking 3 people I have listed 6 quotes.

Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance.” Woodrow Wilson.

For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” Nelson Mandela.

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.” Abraham Lincoln.

“When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty.” John Basil Barnhill.

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” George Orwell.

“My definition of a free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular.” Adlai Stevenson, speech, Detroit, 1952.

  2. Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
    Where knowledge is free
    Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
    By narrow domestic walls
    Where words come out from the depth of truth
    Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
    Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
    Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
    Where the mind is led forward by thee
    Into ever-widening thought and action
    Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake
    Rabindranath Tagore
