Freedom Quotes

“The first duty of a man is to think for himself” Jose Marti

 

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

 

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free” Ronald Reagan

“The price of Freedom: Constant alertness, constant willingness to fight back. There is no other price.”  L. Ron Hubbard

 

“Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens’ lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons.” Ron Paul

 

“We have buried the putrid corpse of Liberty”  Benito Mussolini (Fascist Dictator of Italy during WW II)
