The history of liberty is the history of the limitations of governmental power, not the increase of it. When we resist the concentration of power we are resisting the powers of death. Concentration of power precedes the destruction of human liberties. - Woodrow T. Wilson
If liberty has any meaning it means freedom to improve. - Philip Wylie

You could not liberate a stone if there were no law of gravity -- for where will the stone go, once it is quarried? - Antoine De Saint-Exupery
