2. “Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.”

3. “Life without liberty is like a body without spirit.”

4. “Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.”

5. “You can protect your liberties in this world only by protecting the other man’s freedom. You can be free only if I am free.”
