On this page I share with you some inspirational quotes on freedom, spoken throughout history.
Enjoy these thoughts as you contemplate the idea of freedom in your own life.
Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose.

not freedom from something but a sense of freedom,
a freedom to doubt and question everything
and therefore so intense, active and vigorous
that it throws away every form of
dependence, slavery, conformity and acceptance.

and I know that this is a controversial idea...

He will decimate his enemies.
He will try and try and try again,
against all odds, against all prejudices.

the chance to formulate the available choices,
to argue over them and then, the opportunity to choose.

none but ourselves can free our mind.
