Thomas Jefferson
Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.
George Bernard Shaw
Liberty must be limited in order to be possessed
Edmund Burke
Liberty will not descend to a people; a people must raise themselves to liberty; it is a blessing that must be earned before it can be enjoyed.

One of the qualities of liberty is that, as long as it is being striven after, it goes on expanding. Therefore, the man who stands in the midst of the struggle and says, "I have it," merely shows by doing so that he has just lost it.
Henrik Ibsen
Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.
Thomas Jefferson
Over grown military establishments are under any form of government inauspicious to liberty, and are to be regarded as particularly hostile to republican liberty.
