Freedom is the oxygen without which science cannot breathe.
      - David Sarnoff

Man is created free, and is free, even though born in chains.
  [Ger., Der Mensch ist frei geschaffen, ist frei
    Und wurd' er in Ketten geboren.]
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller,
        Die Worte des Glaubens (st. 2)

Freedom is only in the land of dreams. and the beautiful only blooms in song.

    Und das Schone bluht nur im Gesang.]

When the mind's free,
  The body's delicate.
      - William Shakespeare, King Lear
         (King Lear at III, iv)

What art thou Freedom? Oh, could slaves
  Answer from their living graves
    This demand, tyrants would flee
      Like a dim dream's imagery!
        Thou art Justice--ne'er for gold
          May thy righteous laws be sold,
            As laws are in England: thou
              Shield'st alike high and low.
                Thou art Peace--never by thee
                  Would blood and treasure wasted be
                    As tyrants wasted them when all
                      Leagued to quench thy flame in Gaul!
                        Thou art love: the rich have kist
                          Thy feet and like him following Christ
                            Given their substance to be free
                              And through the world have followed thee.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley

Stranger, new flowers in our vales are seen,
  With a dazzling eye, and a lovely, green.--They scent the breath of the dewy morn:
    They feed no worm, and they hide no thorn,
      But revel and glow in our balmy air;
        They are flowers which Freedom hath planted there.
      - Lydia Huntley Sigourney

Easier were it
  To hurl the rooted mountain from its base,
    Than force the yoke of slavery upon men
      Determin'd to be free.
      - Robert Southey

The last link is broken
  That bound me to thee,
    And the words thou hast spoken
      Have render'd me free.
      - Fanny Steers, Song

Man in not free to refuse to do the thing which gives him more pleasure than any other conceivable actions.
      - de Stendhal (pseudonym of Marie Henri Beyle)

A hungry man is not a free man.
      - Adlai E. Stevenson

Freedom is not an ideal, it is not even a protection, if it means nothing more than the freedom to stagnate.
      - Adlai E. Stevenson

Freedom rings where opinions clash.

By the laws of God, of nature, of nations, and of your country you are and ought to be as free a people as your brethren in England.

Of old sat Freedom on the heights
  The thunders breaking at her feet:
    Above her shook the starry lights;
      She heard the torrents meet.

  Is it turning a fainter red? so be it, but when shall we lay
    The ghost of the Brute that is walking and hammering us yet and be free?
