"The only freedom deserving the name,

is that of pursuing our own good in our own way,

so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs,

or impede their efforts to obtain it.

Each is the proper guardian of his own health,

whether bodily, or mental and spiritual.

Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other

to live as seems good to themselves,

than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest."

-- John Stuart Mill

(1806-1873) English philosopher and economist

"And this I must fight against:

any idea, religion or government

which limits or destroys the individual.

This is what I am and what I am about.

I can understand why a system built on a

pattern must try to destroy the free mind,

for this is the one thing which can

by inspection destroy such a system."

-- John Steinbeck

"It rankles me when somebody tries to force somebody to do something."

-- John Wayne

[Marion Robert Morrison] (1907-1979) American film actor, director and producer
