Random Liberty Quotes
I have added 89 new quotes to the "Random Liberty Quote", which loads on the main page. This brings the total number of quotes to more than 350.
The purpose of the Random Liberty Quote is to make you think about what freedom means to you, as you read others' ideas of what it means to them.
As you visit Sweet Liberty, you will read quotes from a wide, diverse group of people. Some of them were good people, some of them were wicked people. Some of the quotes are truthful, while others are morbidly false. Some strategize the maintenance of freedom, while others openly contemplate the entanglement of totalitarianism. Still others will require the reader to halt and ponder the true meaning of the written words.
The commentators range from ancient philosophers, inventors, innovators, to the founders of religions, and the Founding Fathers of America. From the past to the present, they include public figures and entertainers. From Thomas Jefferson, to William Jefferson Clinton's wife, the list of those who speak either favorably or derogatorily of freedom is as diverse as the populations of people who occupy our land.
There are many jewels of wisdom that can be gleaned from these nuggets of truth. Equally, the arrogance of the Elite is placed upon display, for the education of the liberty-minded.
Every quote bears relevance, in some form or other, upon your individual freedom. For this reason, there are many good quotes which I reject, as they do not fit the template.
Often in my pursuit of a good quote, I will discover a real pearl. It's only blemish is the fact that the person to whom it is attributed is known to me to be extremely hypocritical as their actions have not matched and supported their expressed ideas. I have, nevertheless, included them regardless of the source. However, the reader must remain mindful that inclusion is not necessarily indicative of endorsement.
Indeed, even the most wicked rulers make statements which ring true despite the secret and contrary motives of their heart.
The Random Liberty Quotes are the words of varied individuals who are expressing their opinions of liberty. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed compiling them for you.
I will continue to add to them as time allows.
