Quote of the Day

Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first of all strike down. They know its power. Thrones, dominions, principalities, and powers, founded in injustice and wrong, are sure to tremble, if men are allowed to reason of righteousness, temperance, and of a judgment to come in their presence.

—Frederick Douglass

  1. Thank you for posting this. I collect liberty-minded quotes such as this, and add them to the ends of letters I write to friends and family.
