And lo! the fullness of the time has come,
  And over all the exile's western home,
    From sea to sea the flowers of freedom bloom!
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

Freedom's soil hath only place
  For a free and fearless race!
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

The slave will be free. Democracy in America will yet be a glorious reality; and when the top-stone of that temple of freedom which our fathers left unfinished shall be brought forth with shoutings and cries of grace unto it, when our now drooping Liberty lifts up her head and prospers, happy will he be who can say, with John Milton, "Among those who have something more than wished her welfare, I, too, have my charter and freehold of rejoicing to me and my heirs."
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

When freedom, on her natal day,
  Within her war-rock'd cradle lay,
    An iron race around her stood,
      Baptiz'd her infant brow in blood,
        And through the storm that round her swept,
          Their constant ward and watching kept.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

The nations lift their right hands up and swear
  Their oath of freedom.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, Garibaldi

Freedom exists only where the people take care of the government.
      - Thomas Woodrow Wilson,
        at the Workingman's Dinner in New York

Only free peoples can hold their purpose and their honor steady to a common end, and prefer the interests of mankind to any narrow interest of their own.
      - Thomas Woodrow Wilson,
        in an address to Congress on war being declared with Germany

Our object now, as then, is to vindicate the principles of peace and justice in the life of the world as against selfish and autocratic power, and to set up among the really free and self governed peoples of the world such a concert of purpose and of action as will henceforth insure the observance of those principles.
      - Thomas Woodrow Wilson,
        in a address to Congress on war being declared with Germany

How does the Meadow flower its bloom unfold?
  Because the lovely little flower is free
    Down to its root, and in that freedom, bold.
      - William Wordsworth,
        A Poet! He hath put his Heart to School

We must be free or die, who speak the tongue
  That Shakespeare spake; the faith and morals hold
    Which Milton held.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Sonnets to National Independence and Liberty
         (pt. XVI)

An individual should not have too much freedom. A nation should have absolute freedom.
      - Sun Yat-sen
