Following quotes are for you to ponder: 

[1] We hear them cry “Freedom, freedom.” Yet they demonstrate little awareness that with freedom goes responsibility. [Eduard Kuhn] 

[2] There are two freedoms, the false where one is free to do what he likes, and the true where he is free to do what he ought. [Charles Kingsley] 

[3] Freedom is only good as a means, is no end in itself. [Herman Melville] 

[4] No man is free who is not master of himself. [Epictetus] 

[5] Freedom is an indivisible word. If we want to enjoy it, and fight for it, we must be prepared to extend it to everyone, whether they are rich or poor, whether they agree with us or not, not matter what their race or color of their skin. [Wendell L. Willkie] 

[6] Education is the first resort as well as the last, for a world-wide solution of the problem of freedom. [Horace Meyer Kallen] 

[7] Freedom presupposes order, and order presupposes rules and the ability to enforce them. [Roger William Heyns] 

[8] Ours is an abiding faith in the cause of human freedom. We know it is God’s cause. [Thomas E. Dewey] 

[9] A free country is one in which men have the freedom to complain about it. [Anonymous] 

[10] In future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms. The first is freedom of speech and expression – everywhere in the world. The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way – everywhere in the world. The third is freedom from want – which, translated into world terms, means  economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants – everywhere in the world. The fourth is freedom from fear – which, translated into world terms, means a worldwide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thought fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor – anywhere in the world. That is no vision of distant millennium. It is a definite basis for a kind of world attainable in our own time and generation. [Franklin D. Roosevelt] 

[11] The day will come  when … victorious nations will plan and build in justice and freedom a house of many mansions, where there will be room for all. [Winston Churchill] 

[12] Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom [2Cor 3:17] 

[13] Freedom is the coin of the realm of the kingdom of human worth and dignity. That coin has two sides. On one are inscribed the rights and privileges of free people. On the other side are the responsibilities. Unless both sides are deeply cut, the coin is counterfeit. [P.E. Kay]
