They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.
Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.
Benjamin Franklin – quotes and aphorisms
Without freedom of thought, there can be no such thing as wisdom — and no such thing as public liberty without freedom of speech.
