Quote from William Allen White,

"You say that freedom of utterance is not for time of stress,
and I reply with the sad truth that only in time of stress
is freedom of utterance in danger...
Only when free utterance is suppressed is it needed,
and when it is needed it is most vital to justice."


William Allen White (more quotes by William Allen White or books by/about William Allen White)
