Never abandon life. There is a way out of everything except death.
more Sir Winston Churchill quotes
The other thing we have to do is to take seriously the role in this problem of...older men who prey on underage women...There are consequences to decisions and...one way or the other, people always wind up being held accountable.
more Bill Clinton quotes
Tolerance implies a respect for another person, not because he is wrong or even because he is right, but because he is human.
more John Cogley quotes
A people are free in proportion as they form their own opinions.
more Samuel Taylor Coleridge quotes
The justification and the purpose of freedom of speech is not to indulge those who want to speak their minds. It is to prevent error and discover truth. There may be other ways of detecting error and discovering truth than that of free discussion, but so far we have not found them.
more Henry Steele Commager quotes
Nobody should be compelled to respect an ideology that doesn’t respect them.
more Pat Condell quotes
Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside of ourselves will affect us.
more Steven R. Covey quotes
One of the problems that the marijuana reform movement consistently faces is that everyone wants to talk about what marijuana does, but no one ever wants to look at what marijuana prohibition does. Marijuana never kicks down your door in the middle of the night. Marijuana never locks up sick and dying people, does not suppress medical research, does not peek in bedroom windows. Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could.
more Richard Cowan quotes
Morality, and the ideal of freedom which is the political expression of morality, are not the property of a given party or group, but a value that is fundamentally and universally human... No people will be truly free till all are free.
more Benedetto Croce quotes
You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man's freedom. You can only be free if I am free.
more Clarence S. Darrow quotes
You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man's freedom. You can only be free if I am free.
more Clarence S. Darrow quotes
Government schools can't teach reading, writing, and arithmetic -- why should we trust them to teach morality, respect, and character? If public education does for ethics what it's done for learning, we'll end up with a generation of immoral, disrespectful, and characterless students.
more Steve Dasbach quotes
A wise man neither suffers himself to be governed, nor attempts to govern others.
more Jean de la Bruyere quotes
He is free who knows how to keep in his own hands the power to decide at each step, the course of his life, and who lives in a society which does not block the exercise of that power.
more Salvador De Madariaga quotes
A man must keep a little back shop where he can be himself without reserve. In solitude alone can he know true freedom.
more Michel De Montaigne quotes
You know, being black doesn’t give you a license to call people racist any more than being Jewish gives you license to call people anti-Semitic.
more Alan Dershowitz quotes
Our First Amendment expresses a far different calculus for regulating speech than for regulating nonexpressive conduct and that is as it should be. The right to swing your fist should end at the tip of my nose, but your right to express your ideas should not necessarily end at the lobes of my ears.
more Alan Dershowitz quotes
If we move away from the American tradition of lawyers defending those with whom they vehemently disagree -- as we temporarily did during the McCarthy period -- we weaken our commitment to the rule of law... So beware of an approach which limits advocacy to that which is approved by the standards of political correctness.
more Alan Dershowitz quotes
A man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies, becomes unable to recognize truth, either in himself or in anyone else, and he ends up losing respect for himself and for others. When he has no respect for anyone, he can no longer love, and in him, he yields to his impulses, indulges in the lowest form of pleasure, and behaves in the end like an animal in satisfying his vices. And it all comes from lying to others and to yourself.
more Fyodor Dostoyevsky quotes
The privacy and dignity of our citizens [are] being whittled away by sometimes imperceptible steps. Taken individually, each step may be of little consequence. But when viewed as a whole, there begins to emerge a society quite unlike any we have seen -- a society in which government may intrude into the secret regions of a [person’s] life.
more Justice William O. Douglas quotes
What shall be done with the four million slaves if they are emancipated? ... Primarily, it is a question less for man than for God -- less for human intellect than for the laws of nature to solve. It assumes that nature has erred; that the law of liberty is a mistake; that freedom, though a natural want of the human soul, can only be enjoyed at the expense of human welfare, and that men are better off in slavery than they would or could be in freedom; that slavery is the natural order of human relations, and that liberty is an experiment. What shall be done with them? Our answer is, do nothing with them; mind your business, and let them mind theirs. Your doing with them is their greatest misfortune. They have been undone by your doings, and all they now ask, and really have need of at your hands, is just to let them alone. They suffer by every interference, and succeed best by being let alone.
more Frederick Douglass quotes
How wonderful the world might be if only we gave to each other all the love we claim to give to God, a thought which has been expressed time and time again, yet it still manages to resound with a poignance that is almost painful. Such a world can be ours, sisters and brothers. Let us work together to achieve it.
more John J. Dunphy quotes
The freedom of each individual can only be the freedom of all.
more Friedrich Durrenmatt quotes
Any power must be an enemy of mankind which enslaves the individual by power and by force, whether it arises under the Fascist or the Communist flag. All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded to the individual.
more Albert Einstein quotes
The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the Prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected with this.
more Albert Einstein quotes
Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth.
more Albert Einstein quotes
A human being is a part of the whole, called by us, "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest -- a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.
more Albert Einstein quotes
The highest compact we can make with our fellow is - "Let there be truth between us two forevermore."
more Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes
Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.
more Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes
The beginning of philosophy is the recognition of the conflict between opinions.
more Epictetus quotes
Freedom may come quickly in robes of peace, or after ages of conflict and war; but come it will, and abide it will, so long as the principles by which it was acquired are held sacred.
more Edward Everett quotes
If you admit that to silence your opponent by force is to win an intellectual argument, then you admit the right to silence people by force.
more Hans Eysenck quotes
Dissent and dissenters have no monopoly on freedom. They must tolerate opposition. They must accept dissent from their dissent. And they must give it the respect and the latitude which they claim for themselves.
more Abe Fortas quotes
Being tolerant does not mean that I share another one’s belief. But it does mean that I acknowledge another one’s right to believe, and obey, his own conscience.
more Viktor Frankl quotes
Printers are educated in the Belief, that when Men differ in Opinion, both sides ought equally to have the Advantage of being heard by the Public; and that when Truth and Error have fair Play, the former is always an overmatch for the latter: Hence [printers] cheerfully serve all contending Writers that pay them well, without regarding on which side they are of the Question in Dispute.
more Benjamin Franklin quotes
It is very imprudent to deprive America of any of her privileges. If her commerce and friendship are of any importance to you, they are to be had on no other terms than leaving her in the full enjoyment of her rights.
more Benjamin Franklin quotes
I know of no inquiry which the impulses of man suggests that is forbidden to the resolution of man to pursue.
more Margaret Fuller quotes
If I said, "The live-and-let-live people I've met are generally warm and generous, although often reserved and respectful, while the control freaks I've met are generally cynical, mean and aggressively obnoxious," would that seem likely to be true? Of course it does. It IS true, and it's obviously logically consistent and what you'd expect. BUT, if I said, "I've found the intellectual defenders of private property and laissez-faire capitalism whom I've met to be generally warm and generous, while the so-called "liberal" defenders of the welfare state I've found to be often cynical, mean and tight-fisted in their personal lives," would THAT seem likely to be true? Think about it. Well, it's also true ... it's a matter of semantics, or word choice. BECAUSE BOTH SENTENCES SAY EXACTLY THE SAME THING.
more Rick Gaber quotes
The whole of the Bill [of Rights] is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals... It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of.
more Albert Gallatin quotes
Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote freedom to err.
more Mahatma Mohandas K. Gandhi quotes
The things that will destroy us are: politics without principle; pleasure without conscience; wealth without work; knowledge without character; business without morality; science without humanity; and worship without sacrifice.
more Mahatma Mohandas K. Gandhi quotes
Courtesy towards opponents and eagerness to understand their view-point is the ABC of non-violence.
more Mahatma Mohandas K. Gandhi quotes
Live life simply so that others may simply live.
more Mahatma Mohandas K. Gandhi quotes
No man shall rule over me with my consent. I will rule over no man.
more William Lloyd Garrison quotes
All violations of essential privacy are brutalizing.
more Katherine Fullerton Gerould quotes
In the name of peace They waged the wars Ain't they got no shame
more Nikki Giovanni quotes
A truly great library contains something in it to offend everyone.
more Jo Godwin quotes
Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them to become what they are capable of being.
more Johann Wolfgang von Goethe quotes
The moment men obtain perfect freedom, that moment they erect a stage for the manifestation of their faults. The strong characters begin to go wrong by excess of energy; the weak by remissness of action.
more Johann Wolfgang von Goethe quotes
The unnatural, that too is natural.
