Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.
The love of liberty with life is given, And life itself the inferior gift of Heaven.
The sun of liberty is set; you must light up the candle of industry and economy.
Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.
Liberty, as it is concieved by current opinion, has nothing inherent about it; it is a sort of gift or trust bestowed on the individual by the state pending good behaviour.
Resolve not to be poor: whatever you have, spend less. Poverty is a great enemy to human happiness; it certainly destroys liberty, and it makes some virtues impracticable and others extremely difficult.
The principle of liberty and equality, if coupled with mere selfishness, will make men only devils, each trying to be independent that he may fight only for his own interest. And here is the need of religion and its power, to bring in the principle of benevolence and love to men.
If liberty and equality, as is thought by some, are chiefly to be found in democracy, they will be best attained when all persons alike share in government to the utmost.
Equality, rightly understood as our founding fathers understood it, leads to liberty and to the emancipation of creative differences; wrongly understood, as it has been so tragically in our time, it leads first to conformity and then to despotism

Discipline must come through liberty. . . . We do not consider an individual disciplined only when he has been rendered as artificially silent as a mute and as immovable as a paralytic. He is an individual annihilated, not disciplined.
I prefer liberty to chains of diamonds.
There may be liberty and justice for all, but there are tax breaks only for some.
Teenage boys, goaded by their surging hormones run in packs like the primal horde. They have only a brief season of exhilarating liberty between control by their mothers and control by their wives.
The tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants
A university should be a place of light, of liberty, and of learning.
The conscience is the sacred haven of the liberty of man.
The people are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.
Absolute liberty is absence of restraint; responsibility is restraint; therefore, the ideally free individual is responsible to himself.
Humanity has won its battle. Liberty now has a country
The spirit of liberty is the spirit which is not too sure that it is right; the spirit of liberty is the spirit which seeks to understand the minds of other men and women
Civilization begins with order, grows with liberty and dies with chaos
Every man who expresses an honest thought is a soldier in the army of intellectual liberty
