  Jehovah hath triumphed--his people are free.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Sacred Songs--Sound of loud Timbrel

Hope for a season bade the world farewell,
  And Freedom shrieked as Kosciusko fell!
    . . . .
      O'er Prague's proud arch the fires of ruin glow.
      - Thomas Campbell, Pleasures of Hope
         (l. 381)

Freedom is nothing else but a chance to be better.

The only freedom worth possessing is that which gives enlargement to a people's energy, intellect, and virtues.
      - William Ellery Channing

England may as well dam up the waters of the Nile with bulrushes as to fetter the step of Freedom, more proud and firm in this youthful land than where she treads the sequestered glens of Scotland, or couches herself among the magnificent mountains of Switzerland.
      - Mrs. Lydia Maria Child,
        Supposititious Speech of James Otis--The Rebels
         (ch. IV)

If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all.
      - Noam Chomsky

The recovery of freedom is so splendid a thing that we must not shun even death when seeking to recover it.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

To freemen, threats are impotent.
  [Lat., Nulla enim minantis auctoritas apud liberos est.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Epistles (XI, 3)

The water-lily, in the midst of waters, opens its leaves and expands its petals, at the first pattering of the shower, and rejoices in the rain-drops with a quicker sympathy than the packed shrubs in the sandy desert.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

O what a loud and fearful shriek was there!
  . . .
    Ah me! they view'd beneath an hireling's sword
      Fallen Kosciusco.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Sonnet

We hail the return of the day of thy birth,
  Fair Columbia! washed by the waves of two oceans
    Where men from the farthest dominions of earth
      Rear altars to Freedom, and pay their devotions;
        Where our fathers in fight, nobly strove for the Right,
          Struck down their fierce foemen or put them to flight;
            Through the long lapse of ages, that so there might be
              An asylum for all in the Land of the Free.
      - Abraham Coles

Perfect freedom is reserved for the man who lives by his own work and in that work does what he wants to do.

No, Freedom has a thousand charms to show
  That slaves, howe'er contented, never know.

  And all are slaves besides.
      - William Cowper, Task (bk. V, l. 733)

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.

        in an address to the jury in the Communist Trial, 1920

This will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.
      - Elmer Davis

I want free life, and I want fresh air;
  And I sigh for the canter after the cattle,
    The crack of the whip like shots in battle,
      The medley of horns, and hoofs, and heads
        That wars, and wrangles, and scatters and spreads;
          The green beneath and the blue above,
            And dash, and danger, and life and love.
      - Frank Desprez, Lasca

Better shun the bait than struggle in the snare.
      - John Dryden

O freedom, first delight of human kind!
      - John Dryden

I am as free as nature first made man,
  Ere the base laws of servitude began,
    When wild in woods the noble savage ran.
      - John Dryden, Conquest of Granada
         (act I, sc. 1)

Americans, indeed all free men, remember that in the final choice a soldier's pack is not so heavy a burden as a prisoner's chains.
