– Mahatma Gandhi

Responsibility is the price of freedom.

Elbert Hubbard

Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better

– Albert Camus

– William Faulkner

Henry David Thoreau

– Bill Owens

Freedom of speech and freedom of action are meaningless without freedom to think. And there is no freedom of thought without doubt.

– Bergen Evans

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

– Voltaire

For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.

– Nelson Mandela

Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.


If you think you are bound, you remain bound; you make your own bondage. If you know that you are free, you are free this moment. This is knowledge, knowledge of freedom. Freedom is the goal of all nature.

– Swami Vivekananda
