Lord Jesus, thou who art the way, the truth, and the life; hear us as we pray for the truth that shall make all free.
Teach us that liberty is not only to be loved but also to be lived. Liberty is too precious a thing to be buried in books.

to do what is right.
Peter Marshall, Before the U.S. Senate.
Liberty of thought is in itself a good; but it gives an opening to false liberty.
John Henry Newman, Apologia pro vita Sua, 1864.
A man's worst difficulties begin when he is able to do as he likes.
Thoman Huxley, "Address on University Education,"

as an entirely free man conceivable.
Phillips Brooks (1835- 1893), Perennials.
