Quotes To Ponder

by Adam Selene

Freedom is not merely the opportunity to do as one pleases; neither is it merely the opportunity to choose between set alternatives. Freedom is, first of all, the chance to formulate the available choices, to argue over them — and then, the opportunity to choose.

– C. Wright Mills

When liberty is taken away by force it can be restored by force. When it is relinquished voluntarily by default it can never be recovered.

– Dorothy Thompson
