Quotes for February 7, 2008

George Orwell:

  • If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.
  • If large numbers of people believe in freedom of speech, there will be freedom of speech even if the law forbids it. But if public opinion is sluggish, inconvenient minorities will be persecuted, even if laws exist to protect them.

Thomas Paine:

  • Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.
