Quote from Frederick Douglass 

"Liberty is meaningless where the right
to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist.
That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants.
It is the right which they first of all strike down."

Quote by:
Frederick Douglass
[Frederick Baily] (1818-1895), escaped slave, Abolitionist, author, editor of the North Star and later the New National Era
Speech, Boston, 1860
