He only earns his freedom and his life who takes them every day by storm.Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.
It’s better to fight for something in life than to die for nothing.
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
This is no time for ease and comfort. It is time to dare and endure.
Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.
Science can flourish only in an atmosphere of free speech.
Freedom, in any case, is only possible by constantly struggling for it.
Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.
Freedom lies in being bold.
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
John F. Kennedy
A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.
My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth.
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.
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The candle of liberty has always been kept lit by a vigilant few.
Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it.
When liberty is taken away by force it can be restored by force. When it is relinquished voluntarily by default it can never be recovered.
After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it. I sure as hell wouldn’t want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.
William S. Burroughs
