"The only freedom deserving the name,
is that of pursuing our own good in our own way,
so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs,
or impede their efforts to obtain it.
Each is the proper guardian of his own health,
whether bodily, or mental and spiritual.
Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other
to live as seems good to themselves,
than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest."
On Liberty, 1859
