A Half Dozen Ponder Points On Freedom

Ironic. Cowards use freedom of speech to denounce those who have the courage to defend it. - Unknown

Freedom without accountability makes us prisoners of chaos. - Unknown

If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth. And this idea that government is beholden to the people, that it has no other source of power except to sovereign people, is still the newest and most unique idea in all the long history of man's relation to man. This is the issue of this election. Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves. - Ronald Reagan

History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. - Dwight D. Eisenhower

I have walked that long road to freedom. But I can rest only for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities; and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.— Nelson Mandela

Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom. - Albert Einstein
