"All are architects of Fate,
Working in these walls of Time;
some with massive deeds and great,
Some with ornaments of rhyme."
"To speak his thoughts is every freeman's right,
in peace and war, in council and in fight."
"There is only one remedy for ignorance and thoughtlessness, and that is literacy. Millions and millions of children would today stand in no need of sex education or consumer education or anti-racism education or any of those fake educations, if they had had in the first place 'an' education."

"Whoever would overthrow the Liberty of a Nation,
must begin by subduing Freedom of Speech...
Without Freedom of Thought, there can be no such Thing as Wisdom;
and no such Thing as publick Liberty, without Freedom of Speech..."
"But this is slavery, not to speak one’s thought."
"A free press stands as one of the great interpreters between the government and the people. To allow it to be fettered is to fetter ourselves."

Information is not knowledge;
Knowledge is not Wisdom;
Wisdom is not truth;
Truth is not beauty;
Beauty is not love;
Love is not music;
Music is the best."
"Forms of expression always appear turgid to those
who do not share the emotions they represent."
"The constitutional right of free speech has been declared to be the same in peace and war. In peace, too, men may differ widely as to what loyalty to our country demands, and an intolerant majority, swayed by passion or by fear, may be prone in the future, as it has been in the past, to stamp as disloyal opinions with which it disagrees."

"The Liberty of the press is the Palladium of all
the civil, political and religious rights of an Englishman."

just like the freedom to think, a holy and inalienable right of humanity that,
as a universal human right, is above all the rights of princes."
"The knowledge of the world
is only to be acquired in the world,
and not in a closet."

"Newspapers have degenerated.
They may now be
absolutely relied upon."
"The death of media influence has been greatly exaggerated."
"I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which, in truth, they are. If I killed them all there would be news from Hell before breakfast."
