In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed it must be achieved.
If in other lands the press and books and literature of all kinds are censored, we must redouble our efforts here to keep them free
True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.
Freedom to learn is the first necessity of guaranteeing that man himself shall be self-reliant enough to be free
Freedom of speech is of no use to a man who has nothing to say and freedom of worship is of no use to a man who has lost his God.
We, and all others who believe in freedom as deeply as we do, would rather die on our feet than live on our knees
Books can not be killed by fire. People die, but books never die. No man and no force can abolish memory.. In this war, we know, books are weapons. And it is a part of your dedication always to make them weapons for man's freedom.
The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the government.
The Truth is found when men (and Women) are free to pursue it.
