« He is the freeman whom the truth makes free, And all are slaves besides »: William Cowper

« Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves »: William Pitt, Earl of Chatham

« It is part of the moral tragedy with which we are dealing that words like « democracy, » « freedom, » « rights, » « justice, » which have so often inspired heroism and have led men to give their lives for things which make life worthwhile, can also become a trap, the means of destroying the very things men desire to uphold. » Sir Norman Angell (1874 – 1967), 1956.
