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

- Burke, Edmund
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

- Thomas Jefferson
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.

- John Adams
America will never run... And we will always be grateful that liberty has found such brave defenders.

- George W. Bush
Liberty is the right to choose, freedom is the result of that choice.

Unity in things necessary, liberty in things doubtful, charity in everything.

There is one expanding horror in American life. It is that our long odyssey toward liberty, democracy and freedom-for-all may be achieved in such a way that utopia remains forever closed, and we live in freedom and hell, debased of style, not individual from one another, void of courage, our fear rationalized away.

- Mailer, Norman
We are right to take alarm at the first experiment upon our liberties.

- Madison, James
Liberty has restraints but no frontiers.

- Lloyd George
Free people, remember this maxim: We may acquire liberty, but it is never recovered if it is once lost.

- Rousseau
Indignation boils my blood at the thought of the heritage we are throwing away; at the thought that, with few exceptions, the fight for freedom is left to the poor, forlorn and defenseless, and to the few radicals and revolutionaries who would make use of liberty to destroy, rather than to maintain, American institutions.

- Arthur Garfield Hays
The sovereignty of one's self over one's self is called Liberty.

- Pike, Albert
Liberty consists in wholesome restraint.

- Webster, Daniel
Liberty without learning is always in peril; learning without liberty is always in vain.

- John F. Kennedy
LOOKING-GLASS, n. A vitreous plane upon which to display a fleeting show for man's disillusion given. The King of Manchuria had a magic looking-glass, whereon whoso looked saw, not his own image, but only that of the king. A certain courtier who had long enjoyed the king's favor and was thereby enriched beyond any other subject of the realm, said to the king: "Give me, I pray, thy wonderful mirror, so that when absent out of thine august presence I may yet do homage before thy visible shadow, prostrating myself night and morning in the glory of thy benign countenance, as which nothing has so divine splendor, O Noonday Sun of the Universe!" Please with the speech, the king commanded that the mirror be conveyed to the courtier's palace; but after, having gone thither without apprisal, he found it in an apartment where was naught but idle lumber. And the mirror was dimmed with dust and overlaced with cobwebs. This so angered him that he fisted it hard, shattering the glass, and was sorely hurt. Enraged all the more by this mischance, he commanded that the ungrateful courtier be thrown into prison, and that the glass be repaired and taken back to his own palace; and this was done. But when the king looked again on the mirror he saw not his image as before, but only the figure of a crowned ass, having a bloody bandage on one of its hinder hooves -- as the artificers and all who had looked upon it had before discerned but feared to report. Taught wisdom and charity, the king restored his courtier to liberty, had the mirror set into the back of the throne and reigned many years with justice and humility; and one day when he fell asleep in death while on the throne, the whole court saw in the mirror the luminous figure of an angel, which remains to this day.

- Ambrose Bierce
A free spirit takes liberties even with liberty itself.

- Picabia, Francis
Corruption, the most infallible symptom of constitutional liberty.

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

- Adams, John
Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it.... While it lies there, it needs no constitution, no law, no court to save it.

- Learned Hand
Englishmen hate Liberty and Equality too much to understand them. But every Englishman loves a pedigree.

- Shaw, George Bernard
