Freedom is a new religion, the religion of our time.
      - Heinrich Heine

      Freedom to worship God.

Who then is free? the wise man who is lord over himself;
  Whom neither poverty nor death, nor chains alarm; strong to withstand his passions and despise honors, and who is completely finished and rounded off in himself.
    [Lat., Quisnam igitur liber? Sapiens, sibi qui imperiosus;
      Quem neque pauperies, neque mors, neque vincula terrent
        Responsare cupidinibus, contemnere honores
          Fortis; et in se ipso totus, teres atque rotundus.]
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus), Satires
         (bk. II, VII, 83)

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
  With a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me;
    As he died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
      While God is marching on.
      - Julia Ward Howe (Howel),
        Battle Hymn of the Republic

When we lose the right to be different, we lose the privilege to be free.
      - Charles Evans Hughes

One should never put on one's best trousers to go out to fight for freedom.
      - Henrik Ibsen, Enemy of the People

Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us.
      - Thomas Jefferson

I know it will give great offense to the clergy, but the advocate of religious freedom is to expect neither peace nor forgiveness from them.
      - Thomas Jefferson

If the freedom of religion, guaranteed to us by law in theory, can ever rise in practice under the overbearing inquisition of public opinion, then and only then will truth, prevail over fanaticism.
      - Thomas Jefferson

Let them stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated, where reason is left free to combat it.
      - Thomas Jefferson

It's often safer to be in chains than to be free.
      - Franz Kafka

You are free and that is why you are lost.
      - Franz Kafka

Freedom is alone the unoriginated birthright of man; it belongs to him by force of his humanity, and is in dependence on the will and coaction of every other, in so far as this consists with every other person's freedom.
      - Immanuel Kant

In the long vista of the years to roll,
  Let me not see my country's honor fade;
    Oh! let me see our land retain its soul!
      Her pride in Freedom, and not Freedom's shade.
      - John Keats (1)

The unity of freedom has never relied on uniformity of opinion.
      - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

There are two freedoms--the false, where a man is free to do what he likes; the true, where a man is free to do what he ought.

All we have of freedom--all we use or know--
  This our fathers bough for us, long and long ago.

The cause of freedom is identified with the destinies of humanity, and in whatever part of the world it gains ground by and by, it will be a common gain to all those who desire it.
      - Louis Kossuth

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose,
  Nothin' ain't worth nothin', but it's free.
