I believe the main task of the spirit is to Free man from his ego.Albert Einstein
Oh there is blessing in this gentle breeze, Avisitant that while it fans my cheek Doth seem half conscious of the joy it brings From the green fields, and from yon azure sky.

A state too expensive in itself, or by virtue of its dependencies, ultimately falls into decay; its Free government is transformed into a tyranny; it disregards the principles which it should preserve, and finally degenerates into despotism.

Mind, I am not preaching anything contrary to accepted morality. I am not advocating Free love in this or any other case.

The man wants to stick his iron pick in the little basket, and I do not prevent him. I open the knapsack, and he sees nothing in it. And the food for the soul passes, candid and Free , without paying tribute to the customs .juan ramón jiménez

Most libertarians agree that all rights are, in effect, property rights, beginning with this fundamental right to self-ownership and control of one's own life. As owners of their own lives, individuals are completely Free to do absolutely anything they wish with them provided, of course, that it doesn't violate the identical right of others whether the people around them approve of what they do or not.l. neil smith
The twilight is sad and cloudy, The wind blows wild and Free, And like the wings of sear-birds Hash the white caps of the sea.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Children must be Free to think in all directions irrespective of the peculiar ideas of parents who often seal their children's minds with preconceived prejudices and false concepts of past generations. Unless we are very careful, very careful indeed, and very conscientious, there is still great danger that our children may turn out to be the same kind of people we are.brock chisholm
Only Free men can negotiate; prisoners cannot enter into contracts. Your freedom and mine cannot be separated.nelson mandela

Here is the crisis of the times as I see it: We talk about problems, issues, policies, but we don't talk about what democracy means what it bestows on us the revolutionary idea that it isn't just about the means of governance but the means of dignifying people so they become fully Free to claim their moral and political agency.bill moyers
We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we may always be Free.ronald reagan

I love the joy of mountains Wandering Free with no concerns Every day I find food for this old body There’s leisure for thinking, nothing to do Often I carry an ancient book Sometimes I climb a rock pavilion To look down a thousand foot precipice Overhead are swirling clouds A cold moon chilly cold My body feels like a flying cranehan shan
