Quote from William Faulkner,

"We cannot choose freedom
established on a hierarchy of degrees of freedom,
on a caste system of equality like military rank.
We must be free not because we claim freedom,
but because we practice it."


William Faulkner (more quotes by William Faulkner or books by/about William Faulkner)
