"I call the mind free which jealously guards
its intellectual rights and powers,
which calls no man master,
which does not content itself
with a passive or hereditary faith..."

Reader comments about this quote:
A quotation that accents the rare value of independent thought as opposed to the great majority of minds controlled by custom, the mass, the sheep-like obedience to faiths and politics laid down by ignorant and greedy humans of the past who profited from such blindness and whose progenitors continue to do so.
