freedom quotes

#177 Albert Einstein

I believe with : We can do what we wish, but we can only wish what we must. Practically, I am, nevertheless, compelled to act as if freedom of the will existed. If I wish to live in a civilized community, I must act as if man is a responsible being. I know that philosophically a murderer is not responsible for his crime; nevertheless, I must protect myself from unpleasant contacts. I may consider him guiltless, but I prefer not to take tea with him. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about freedom
#267 Albert Einstein

It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little plant, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it goes to wreck and ruin without fail. It is a very grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about freedom
#319 Albert Einstein

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

Albert Einstein Quotes about freedom
#412 Albert Einstein

[asked whether he had communist sympathies] I have never admired any system that encourages a herd nature in man by suppressing his free will to choose for himself. . . . I said that Marx sacrificed himself for the ideal of social justice, but I didn't say that his theories are right. As for Lenin, I don't believe he liked me. How can I be called a communist when I have fought so long for freedom of thought, of expression, freedom from the military boot, and freedom from automation? .

#479 Martin Luther King, Jr.

Man is man because he is free to operate within the framework of his . He is free to deliberate, to make , and to choose between alternatives. He is distinguished from animals by his freedom to do evil or to do good and to walk the high road ofor tread the low road of ugly degeneracy. .

I say to you that our goal is , and Iwe are going to get there because however much she strays away from it, the goal ofis freedom. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about freedom
#568 Martin Luther King, Jr.

In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as 'right to work.' It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights. It is supported by Southern segregationists who are trying to keep us from achieving our civil rights and our right of equal job opportunity. Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone…Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights. We do not intend to let them do this to us. We demand this fraud be stopped. Our weapon is our vote. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about freedom
#585 Martin Luther King, Jr.

I say to you that our goal is freedom, and I believe we are going to get there because however much she strays away from it, the goal of America is freedom. Abused and scorned though we may be as a people, our destiny is tied up in the destiny of America. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about freedom
#649 Martin Luther King, Jr.

We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was "legal" and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was "illegal." .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about freedom
#654 Martin Luther King, Jr.

Oppressed people cannot remain oppressed forever. The yearning foreventually manifests itself, and that is what has happened to the American Negro. Something within has reminded him of his birthright of freedom, and something without has reminded him that it can be gained. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about freedom
#655 Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Negro has many pent up resentments and latent frustrations, and he must release them. So let him march; let him make prayer pilgrimages to the city hall; let him go on freedom rides -and try to understand why he must do so. If his repressed emotions are not released in nonviolent ways, they will seek expression through violence; this is not a threat but a fact of history. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about freedom
#678 Martin Luther King, Jr.

When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of theand the , they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of . It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds." But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we've come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about freedom
#683 Martin Luther King, Jr.

The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny and their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about freedom
#688 Martin Luther King, Jr.

This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring." And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania! Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado! Let freedom ring from the curvaceous peaks of California! But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia! Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee! Let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about freedom
#689 Martin Luther King, Jr.

When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men,and ,and , will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!" .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about freedom
#708 Martin Luther King, Jr.

Oppressed people cannot remain oppressed forever. The yearning for freedom eventually manifests itself. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about freedom
#871 Martin Luther King, Jr.

All we say to America is, "Be true to what you said on paper." If I lived in China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, maybe I could understand the denial of certain basic First Amendment privileges, because they hadn't committed themselves to that over there. But somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly. Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I read of the freedom of the press. Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for right. And so just as I say, we aren't going to let any injunction turn us around. We are going on. .

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about freedom
#1101 Bertrand Russell

I don't like the spirit of socialism – I think freedom is the basis of everything. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about freedom
#2652 Winston Churchill

Is there any need for further floods of agony? Is the only lesson of history to be that mankind is unteachable? Let there be justice, mercy and freedom. The people have only to will it, and all will achieve their hearts' desire. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about freedom
#2908 Napoleon I of France

That dependable courage, which in spite of the most sudden circumstances, nevertheless allows freedom of mind, of judgment and of decision, is exceedingly rare. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about freedom
#3395 George Bernard Shaw

It is quite useless to declare that all men are bornif you deny that they are born . Guarantee a man's goodness and hiswill take care of itself. To guarantee his freedom on condition that you approve of his moral character is formally to abolish all freedom whatsoever, as every man's liberty is at the mercy of a moral indictment which any fool can trump up against everyone who violates custom, whether as a prophet or as a rascal. .

George Bernard Shaw Quotes about freedom
#3425 George Bernard Shaw

You are so careful of your boy's , knowing how troublesome they may be, that you keep him away from the Venus of Milo only to find him in the arms of the scullery maid or someone much worse. You decide that the Hermes of Praxiteles and Wagner's Tristan are not suited for young girls; and your daughter marries somebody appallingly unlike either Hermes or Tristan solely to escape from your parental protection. You have not stifled a single passion nor averted a single danger: you have depraved the passions by starving them, and broken down all the defences which so effectively protect children brought up in freedom. .

George Bernard Shaw Quotes about freedom
#4323 Cicero

The freedom of poetic license. .

Cicero Quotes about freedom
#4461 Ralph Waldo Emerson

I wish to write such rhymes as shall not suggest a restraint, but contrariwise the wildest freedom. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about freedom
#4925 Dwight D. Eisenhower

Kinship among nations is not determined in such measurements as proximity of size and age. Rather we should turn to those inner things — call them what you will — I mean those intangibles that are the real treasures free men possess. To preserve his freedom of worship, his equality before law, his liberty to speak and act as he sees fit, subject only to provisions that he trespass not upon similar rights of others — a Londoner will fight. So will a citizen of Abilene. When we consider these things, then the valley of the Thames draws closer to the farms of Kansas and the plains of Texas. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about freedom
#4931 Dwight D. Eisenhower

History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about freedom
#4937 Dwight D. Eisenhower

We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose. We must be willing, individually and as a Nation, to accept whatever sacrifices may be required of us. A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both. These basic precepts are not lofty abstractions, far removed from matters of daily living. They are laws of spiritual strength that generate and define our material strength. Patriotism means equipped forces and a prepared citizenry. Moral stamina means more energy and more productivity, on the farm and in the factory. Love of liberty means the guarding of every resource that makes freedom possible--from the sanctity of our families and the wealth of our soil to the genius of our scientists. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about freedom
#4998 Dwight D. Eisenhower

Un-American activity cannot be prevented or routed out by employing un-American methods; to preserve freedom we must use the tools that freedom provides. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about freedom
#5003 Dwight D. Eisenhower

We are so proud of our guarantees of freedom in thought and speech and worship, that, unconsciously, we are guilty of one of the greatest errors that ignorance can make — we assume our standard of values is shared by all other humans in the world. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about freedom
#5035 Bill Gates

I'm a big believer that as much as possible, and there's obviously political limitations, freedom of migration is a good thing. .

Bill Gates Quotes about freedom
#5287 Karl Marx

It is a bad thing to perform menial duties even for the sake of freedom; to fight with pinpricks, instead of with clubs. I have become tired of hypocrisy, stupidity, gross arbitrariness, and of our bowing and scraping, dodging, and hair-splitting over words. Consequently, the government has given me back my freedom. .

Karl Marx Quotes about freedom
#5327 Karl Marx

Communism... is the genuine resolution of the antagonism between man and nature and between man and man; it is the true resolution of the conflict between existence and essence, objectification and self-affirmation, freedom and necessity, individual and species. It is the riddle of history solved and knows itself as the solution. .

Karl Marx Quotes about freedom
#6033 Robert H. Jackson

We can have intellectual individualism and the rich cultural diversities that we owe to exceptional minds only at the price of occasional eccentricity and abnormal attitudes. When they are so harmless to others or to the State as those we deal with here, the price is not too great. But freedom to differ is not limited to things that do not matter much. That would be a mere shadow of freedom. The test of its substance is the right to differ as to things that touch the heart of the existing order. .

Robert H. Jackson Quotes about freedom
#6062 Robert H. Jackson

Not every defeat of authority is a gain for individual freedom, nor every judicial rescue of a convict a victory for liberty. .

Robert H. Jackson Quotes about freedom
#6066 Pierre Trudeau

We peer so suspiciously at each other that we cannot see that we Canadians are standing on the mountaintop of human wealth, freedom and privilege. .

Pierre Trudeau Quotes about freedom
#6109 Pierre Trudeau

Thewere good educators, exceptional teachers. In an era and in a society where freedom of speech was not held in high regard, of course, that the discourse be focused on what they were teaching, but we were able to go beyond this framework without incurring too great a risk. .

Pierre Trudeau Quotes about freedom
#6131 Clarence Darrow

You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man's freedom. You can only be free if I am free. .

Clarence Darrow Quotes about freedom
#6456 Henry David Thoreau

Do we call this the land of the free? What is it to be free from King George and continue the slaves of King Prejudice? What is it to be born free and not to live free? What is the value of any political freedom, but as a means to moral freedom? Is it a freedom to be slaves, or a freedom to be free, of which we boast? We are a nation of politicians, concerned about the outmost defences only of freedom. It is our children's children who may perchance be really free. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about freedom
#6846 Adlai Stevenson

Unreason and anti-intellectualism abominate thought. Thinking implies disagreement; and disagreement implies nonconformity; and nonconformity implies heresy; and heresy implies disloyalty — so, obviously, thinking must be stopped. But shouting is not a substitute for thinking and reason is not the subversion but the salvation of freedom. .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about freedom
#6889 Adlai Stevenson

Because we believe in the free mind we are also fighting those who, in the name of anti-Communism, would assail the community of freedom itself. .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about freedom
#6925 Charles de Gaulle

At the root of our civilization, there is the freedom of each person of thought, of belief, of opinion, of work, of leisure. .

Charles de Gaulle Quotes about freedom
#7074 Albert Camus

Absolute freedom mocks at justice. Absolute justice denies freedom. To be fruitful, the two ideas must find their limits in each other. .

Albert Camus Quotes about freedom
#7139 Adolf Hitler

If freedom is short of weapons, we must compensate with willpower. .

Adolf Hitler Quotes about freedom
#7372 Leo Tolstoy

A commercial company enslaved a nation comprising two hundred millions. Tell this to a man free from superstition and he will fail to grasp what these words mean. What does it mean that thirty thousand men, not athletes but rather weak and ordinary people, have subdued two hundred million vigorous, clever, capable, and freedom-loving people? Do not the figures make it clear that it is not the English who have enslaved the Indians, but the Indians who have enslaved themselves? .

Leo Tolstoy Quotes about freedom
#7463 P. J. O'Rourke

The forces of safety are afoot in the land. I, for one, believe it is a conspiracy— a conspiracy of Safety Nazis shouting "Sieg Health" and seeking to trammel freedom, liberty, and large noisy parties. The Safety Nazis advocate gun control, vigorous exercise, and health foods. The result can only be a disarmed, exhausted, and half-starved population ready to acquiesce to dictatorship of some kind. .

P. J. O'Rourke Quotes about freedom
#7552 P. J. O'Rourke

In a society where commonweal does not exist, there are no duties, only exactations to be avoided, and no freedoms, only privileges to be grabbed. There can be no such thing as "public services" because nothing in the country is truly public. Everything is somebody's fief. And every fief must be exploited if the exploiter cares to survive. .

P. J. O'Rourke Quotes about freedom
#8089 George Carlin

Smug, greedy, well-fed white people have invented a language to conceal their sins. It's as simple as that. The CIA doesn't kill anybody anymore, they neutralize people, or they depopulate the area. The government doesn't lie, it engages in disinformation. The Pentagon actually measures nuclear radiation in something they call sunshine units.killers are called freedom fighters. Well, if crime fighters fight crime, and firefighters fight fires, what do freedom fighters fight? .

George Carlin Quotes about freedom
#8136 H. L. Mencken

Off goes the head of the king, and tyranny gives way to freedom. The change seems abysmal. Then, bit by bit, the face of freedom hardens, and by and by it is the old face of tyranny. Then another cycle, and another. But under the play of all these opposites there is something fundamental and permanent — the basic delusion that men may be governed and yet be free. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about freedom
#8181 H. L. Mencken

I believe in only one thing and that thing is human liberty. If ever a man is to achieve anything like dignity, it can happen only if superior men are given absolute freedom to think what they want to think and say what they want to say. I am against any man and any organization which seeks to limit or deny that freedom. . . [and] the superior man can be sure of freedom only if it is given to all men. .
