Freedom

"The price of freedom is eternal vigilance."
"Don't join the book burners. Don't think you're going to conceal faults by concealing evidence that they ever existed. Don't be afraid to go in your library and read every book..."
"I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do."
"People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use."
"It is the preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else that prevents us from living freely and nobly."
"Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes."
"War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength."
"Who is more to be pitied, a writer bound and gagged by policemen or one living in perfect freedom who has nothing more to say?"
"If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."
"It has been said, 'the truth will make men free.' The truth alone has never made anyone free. It is only doubt which will bring mental emancipation."
"We become slaves the moment we hand the keys to the definition of reality entirely over to someone else, whether it is a business, an economic theory, a political party, the White House, Newsworld or CNN."
"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
