WE ARE INDIANS, FIRSTLY AND LASTLY.

Copy It

Nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious than to be able to decide.

Copy It

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Copy It

It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.

Copy It

Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance.

Copy It

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.

Copy It

I never said, ‘I want to be alone.’ I only said, ‘I want to be let alone!’ There is all the difference.

Copy It

I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery.

Copy It

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

Copy It

Better to die fighting for freedom then be a prisoner all the days of your life.

Copy It

The advancement and diffusion of knowledge is the only guardian of true liberty.

Copy It

Humanity has won its battle. Liberty now has a country.

Copy It

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.

Copy It

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Copy It

If you’re not ready to die for it, put the word ‘freedom’ out of your vocabulary.

Copy It

I’d like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free and wanted other people to be also free.

Copy It

The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.

If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

Copy It

We hold our heads high, despite the price we have paid, because freedom is priceless.

Copy It

It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them.”

Copy It

Freedom lies in being bold.

Copy It

LET THE NEW INDIA ARISE OUT OF PEASANTS’ COTTAGES, GRASPING THE PLOUGH, OUT OF THE HUTS, COBBLERS AND SWEEPERS.
