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,

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

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

Of old sat Freedom on the heights
  The thunders breaking at her feet:
    Above her shook the starry lights;
