  • Freedom is the will to be responsible to ourselves. — Friedrich Nietzsche

  • In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved. — Franklin D. Roosevelt

  • Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. — D.H. Lawrence

  • My definition of a free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular. — Adlai Stevenson

  • The patriot’s blood is the seed of Freedom’s tree. — Thomas Campbell

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

  • Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it. — Thomas Paine

  • We have enjoyed so much freedom for so long that we are perhaps in danger of forgetting how much blood it cost to establish the Bill of Rights. — Felix Frankfurter

  • We on this continent should never forget that men first crossed the Atlantic not to find soil for their ploughs but to secure liberty for their souls. — Robert J. McCracken
