Liberty quotes

No nation ancient or modern ever lost the liberty of freely speaking, writing, or publishing their sentiments, but forthwith lost their liberty in general and became slaves.

- John Peter Zenger

The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves.

- William Hazlitt

I look upon those pitiful concretions of lime and clay which spring up, in mildewed forwardness, out of the kneaded fields about our capital... not merely with the careless disgust of an offended eye, not merely with sorrow for a desecrated landscape, but with a painful foreboding that the roots of our national greatness must be deeply cankered when they are thus loosely struck in their native ground. The crowded tenements of a struggling and restless population differ only from the tents of the Arab or the Gipsy by their less healthy openness to the air of heaven, and less happy choice of their spot of earth; by their sacrifice of liberty without the gain of rest, and of stability without the luxury of change.

- Ruskin, John

As long as I am an American citizen and American blood runs in these veins, I shall hold myself at liberty to speak, to write, and to publish whatever I please on any subject.

- Elija Lovejoy

The true danger is when liberty is nibbled away, for expedience, and by parts.

- Burke, Edmund

Political liberty is to be found only in moderate governments.

- Montesquieu, Charles De

What light is to the eyes -- what air is to the lungs -- what love is to the heart, liberty is to the soul of man.

- Ingersoll, Robert Green

The philosopher is like a man fasting in the midst of universal intoxication. He alone perceives the illusion of which all creatures are the willing playthings; he is less duped than his neighbor by his own nature. He judges more sanely, he sees things as they are. It is in this that his liberty consists -- in the ability to see clearly and soberly, in the power of mental record.

- Amiel, Henri Frederic

It would seem that man was born a slave, and that slavery is his natural condition. At the same time nothing on earth can stop man from feeling himself born for liberty. Never, whatever may happen, can he accept servitude; for he is a thinking creature.

- Weil, Simone

When liberty comes with hands dabbled in blood it is hard to shake hands with her.

- Wilde, Oscar

I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.

- Adams, John

We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

- US Declaration of Independence

The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time.

- Jefferson, Thomas

The slaves of power mind the cause they have to serve, because their own interest is concerned; but the friends of liberty always sacrifice their cause, which is only the cause of humanity, to their own spleen, vanity, and self-opinion.

- Hazlitt, William

The aim of every political association is the preservation of the natural and imprescriptible rights of man. These rights are liberty, property, security and resistance to oppression.

- French National Assembly

He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.

- Thomas Paine

We are all of us the worse for too much liberty.

- Terence

I fear not, I see not reason for fear. In the end we will be the victors. For though at times the flame of liberty may cease to shine, the ember will never expire.

- Thomas Paine

Liberty has no crueler enemy than license.

- Proverb, French

The advance of liberty is the path to both a safer and better world.

- George W. Bush
