"Yes! to this thought I hold with firm persistence;
The last result of wisdom stamps it true;
He only earns his freedom and existence
Who daily conquers them anew."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
(1749-1832) German writer, statesman
Faust (act V, sc. 6)

Reader comments about this quote:
It's like this, you US and A jackasses? Let me put my foot up your ass.
 -- L. Hanson, Edmonton, Canada     
    L. Hanson, are you asking permission to now accompany your pre-existing head position with a newly desired position of your foot ? Hmm, not just a socialist brown nose but some one that likes the smell all over - is that a north country thing ? ;-) As to the quote, I'm not quite sure how to rate it. Freedom and liberty at natural law are inalienable rights of the sovereign individual (you and me). BUT, in a world of Hansons and other jackasses, it becomes an earn and conquer requirement to express that inalienable freedom.

    L. Hanson, perhaps you should sober up before sending that sort of nonsense.

    Hanson = Ignorant Bigot...nice. jim k you're probably right. That sort of inane rant has the appearance of alcoholism or drug abuse.
