Free soil, free men, free speech, Fremont.
      - Unattributed Author,
        Republican Rallying Cry

The freedom now desired by many is not freedom to do and dare but freedom from care and worry.
      - James Truslow Adams

Oh, Liberty! thou goddess heavenly bright!
  Profuse of bliss, and pregnant with delight!
    Eternal pleasures in thy presence reign,
      And smiling plenty leads thy wanton train.
      - Joseph Addison

Better to starve free than be a fat slave.
      - Aesop

A man is either free or he is not.
      - Imamu Amiri Baraka

Freedom all solace to man gives:
  He lives at ease that freely lives.
      - John Barbour, The Bruce (bk. I, 225)

Freedom is not caprice but room to enlarge.
      - Cyrus Augustus Bartol

A bird in a cage is not half a bird.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

When they try to intimidate us, we will not be intimidated, when they seek to change our country, our way of life by these methods, we will not be changed. When they try to divide our people or weaken our resolve, we will not be divided and our resolve will hold firm. We will show by our spirit and dignity and by a quiet and true strength that there is in the British people that our values will long outlast theirs. The purpose of terrorism is just that. It is to terrorize people, and we will not be terrorized. This is a very sad day for the British people but we will hold true to the British way of life.
  . . .
    It's important, however, that those engaged in terrorism realize that our determination to defend our values and our way of life is greater than their determination to cause death and destruction to innocent people in a desire to impose extremism on the world.
      Whatever they do, it is our determination that they will never succeed in destroying what we hold dear in this country and in other civilized nations throughout the world.
      - Tony Blair

Whose service is perfect freedom.
      - Book of Common Prayer, Collect for Peace

The cause of freedom is the cause of God.
      - William Lisle Bowles

. . . for righteous monarchs,
  Justly to judge, with their own eyes should see;
    To rule o'er freemen, should themselves be free.
      - Henry Brooke, Earl of Essex (act I)

So free we seem, so fettered fast we are.
      - Robert Browning

Oh, Freedom! thou art not, as poets dream,
  A fair young girl, with light and delicate limbs,
    And wavy tresses gushing from the cap
      With which the Roman master crowned his slave
        When he took off the gyves. A bearded man
          Armed to the teeth, art thou; one mailed hand
            Grasps the broad shield, and one the sword; thy brow,
              Glorious in beauty though it be, is scarred
                With tokens of old wars.
      - William Cullen Bryant

Oh; not yet
  May'st thou unbrace thy corslet, nor lay by
    Thy sword, nor yet, O Freedom! close thy lids
      In slumber; for thine enemy never sleeps.
        And thou must watch and combat, till the day
          Of the new earth and heaven.
      - William Cullen Bryant

Here the free spirit of mankind, at length,
  Throws its last fetters off; and who shall place
    A limit to the giant's unchained strength,
      Or curb his swiftness in the forward race?
      - William Cullen Bryant, The Ages (XXXIII)

Personal liberty is the paramount essential to human dignity and human happiness.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

In a free country every man thinks he has a concern in all public matters,--that he has a right to form and a right to deliver an opinion on them. This it is that fills countries with men of ability in all stations.
      - Edmund Burke

Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites.
      - Edmund Burke

To prove that the Americans ought not to be free, we are obliged to deprecate the value of freedom itself.
      - Edmund Burke

Know ye not who would be free themselves must strike the blow? by their right arms the conquest must be wrought?
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

The mountains look on Marathon,
  And Marathon looks on the sea;
    And musing there an hour alone
      I dream'd that Greece might still be free. For standing on the Persians' grave
        I could not deem myself a slave.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Hereditary bondsmen! Know ye not
  Who would be free themselves must strike the blow?
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Childe Harold (canto II, st. 76)

Yet, Freedom! yet thy banner, torn, but flying,
  Streams like the thunder-storm against the wind.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Childe Harold (canto IV, st. 98)

For Freedom's battle once begun,
  Bequeath'd by bleeding sire to son,
    Though baffled oft is ever won.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Giaour (l. 123)
