The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
- Thomas Jefferson
It is hard to find a man who has desire for what he has not tasted, or who tastes the world and is untouched. Here in the world some crave pleasure, some seek freedom but it is hard to find a man who wants neither. It is hard to find a man who has an open mind, who neither seeks nor shuns wealth or pleasure, duty or liberation, life or death…He does not want the world to end. He does not mind if it lasts. Whatever befalls him, He lives in happiness.
- Ashtavakra Gita

- Henry David Thoreau
Freedom is nothing else but a chance to be better.
- Albert Camus
