Loss Of Liberty quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#1. The loss of liberty to a generous mind is worse than death. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Ron Paul
#2. Failure of government programs prompts more determined effort, while the loss of liberty is ignored or rationalized away ... whether is it is the war on poverty, drugs, terrorism ... or the current Hitler of the day, an appeal to patriotism is used to convince the people that a little sacrifice of liberty, here or there, is a small price to pay ... The results, though, are frightening and will soon become even more so. #Quote by Ron Paul
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Michael Shermer
#3. The Liberty Principle: It is a higher moral principle to always seek liberty with someone else's liberty in mind, and never seek liberty when it leads to someone else's loss of liberty through force or fraud. The Liberty Principle is an extrapolation from the fundamental principle of all liberty as practiced in Western society: The freedom to believe and act as we choose so long as our beliefs and actions do not infringe on the equal freedom of others. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Loss Of Liberty quotes by James Madison
#4. It is a universal truth that the loss of liberty at home is to be charged to the provisions against danger, real or pretended, from abroad. #Quote by James Madison
Loss Of Liberty quotes by James Madison

Loss Of Liberty quotes by William Blake
#6. He loves to sit and hear me sing, Then, laughing, sports and plays with me; Then stretches out my golden wing, And mocks my loss of liberty. #Quote by William Blake
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Patrick Henry
#7. Show me that age and country where the rights and liberties of the people were placed on the sole chance of their rulers being good men, without a consequent loss of liberty? #Quote by Patrick Henry
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Deneen Borelli
#8. Critics of the global warming agenda are motivated ... by a love of freedom and civil liberties. They want a discussion based on logic and facts that will address any problems without depriving us of liberty and personal choice. They do not want to sacrifice our way of life based on fears of an unproven theory. After all, the loss of liberty is a greater cause of alarm than global warming. #Quote by Deneen Borelli
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Charlie Brooker
#9. Actually, using the Daleks would be a masterstroke. Everyone loves Doctor Who - who wouldn't be thrilled by the sight of a real-life Dalek squadron rolling down the high street, glinting in the sun? The sheer excitement would genuinely make the accompanying loss of liberty seem worthwhile. To liven things up even more, our rasping pepperpot overlords would be colour-coded. Blue Daleks would deal with minor infractions, and would spend most of their time issuing warnings and administering minor shocks - but they'd also be chummy and approachable, and willing to pose for photographs with your nephew. Red Daleks, on the other hand, would be emotionless killing machines. Imagine the atmosphere outside a pub on a hot summer's day: a Red Dalek trundles past, and the convivial hubbub suddenly fades to a whisper. Everyone stiffens. And then he turns the corner and a communal sigh of relief goes up, and the drinking continues and the jukebox plays louder and louder... community spirit lives again. Admit it: it'd be fantastic. #Quote by Charlie Brooker
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Andrew Jackson
#10. Without union our independence and liberty would never have been achieved; without union they can never be maintained. Divided into twenty-four, or even a smaller number, of separate communities, we shall see our internal trade burdened with numberless restraints and exactions; communications between distant points and sections obstructed or cut off; our sons made soldiers to deluge with blood the fields they now till in peace ... The loss of liberty, of all good government, of peace, plenty, and happiness, must inevitably follow a dissolution of the Union. #Quote by Andrew Jackson
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Wendell Willkie
#11. For now more than ever, we must keep in the forefront of our minds the fact that whenever we take away the liberties of those we hate, we are opening the way to loss of liberty for those we love. #Quote by Wendell Willkie
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Angela Carter
#12. Your green eye is a reducing chamber. If I look into it long enough, I wil become as small as my own reflection, I will diminish to a point and vanish. I will be drawn down into that black whirlpool and be consumed by you. I shall become so small you can keep me in one of your osier cages and mock my loss of liberty. #Quote by Angela Carter
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Eric J. Martindale
#13. You see, evil men, the likes of whom have sought to enslave their fellow man since the dawn of creation, took America not by might or strength of arms, but by deception and guile. #Quote by Eric J. Martindale
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Michel Foucault
#14. But a punishment like forced labour or even imprisonment – mere loss of liberty – has never functioned without a certain additional element of punishment that certainly concerns the body itself: rationing of food, sexual deprivation, corporal punishment, solitary confinement … There remains, therefore, a trace of 'torture' in the modern mechanisms of criminal justice – a trace that has not been entirely overcome, but which is enveloped, increasingly, by the non-corporal nature of the penal system #Quote by Michel Foucault
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Roger Altman
#15. If a lending institution is faced with bids for a package of toxic assets that are less than the carrying value of those assets, the sale of those assets would trigger a further loss and reduce the underlying capital of the institution. #Quote by Roger Altman
Loss Of Liberty quotes by John F. Kennedy
#16. I believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute - where no Catholic prelate would tell the President (should he be Catholic) how to act, and no Protestant minister would tell his parishioners for whom to vote - where no church or church school is granted any public funds or political preference - and where no man is denied public office merely because his religion differs from the President who might appoint him or the people who might elect him.

I believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant nor Jewish - where no public official either requests or accepts instructions on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source - where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials - and where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against all.

[Remarks to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association, September 12 1960] #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Loss Of Liberty quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#17. Is it within us all, when the memories of war have faded, to so want to be a part of something great that we throw aside the quiet, the calm, the mundane, the peace itself? Do we collectively come to equate peace with boredom and complacency? Perhaps we hold these embers of war within us, dulled only by sharp memories of the pain and the loss, and when that smothering blanket dissipates with the passage of healing time, those fires flare again to life. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Dan Pearce
#18. Because I hated myself so much for my fatness, I always looked for other fat people, and especially for fatter people, to judge as harshly as the world seemed to be judging me. And you know what? There was always someone fatter who was more disgusting than I was, more not with it, and more lazy. It helped me validate myself as mis-seen, misunderstood, and misevaluated. It also helped me find some sort of weird self-esteem that I never could find when looking at myself in the mirror. #Quote by Dan Pearce
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Johnny Stone
#19. An interesting proposal, but what if I decided to fuck you for the amusement of an audience? Or maybe have you pleasure all men in this room with your mouth, instead? Is the complete loss of your dignity and pride, worth the price?" The cup of champagne brushed my lips again, and I greedily sucked at it, throat bobbing with each provocative swallow. "Yes Master," I gasped. #Quote by Johnny Stone
Loss Of Liberty quotes by James M. Barrie
#20. We never understand how little we need in this world until we know the loss of it. #Quote by James M. Barrie
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#21. When I think of the flag ... I see alternate strips of parchment upon which are written the rights of liberty and justice, and stripes of blood to vindicate those rights, and then, in the corner, a prediction of the blue serene into which every nation may swim which stands for these great things. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#22. the common force cannot lawfully be used to destroy the person, the liberty, or the property of individuals or of classes. For #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Loss Of Liberty quotes by D.L. Moody
#23. Many men live all their lives in bondage to the old nature, when they might have liberty if they would only live this overcoming life. The old Adam never dies. It remains corrupt. "From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment. #Quote by D.L. Moody
Loss Of Liberty quotes by William Wordsworth
#24. The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon,
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers,
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not.
Great God! I'd rather be
A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn. #Quote by William Wordsworth
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#25. While the Governor, and the Mayor, and countless officers of the Commonwealth are at large, the champions of liberty are imprisoned. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Wildbow
#26. Jamie leaned over. "And your perfect world?"

"Mmm," Helen smiled. "Perfect is complicated. Hard to explain."

"Give it a shot," I prodded her.

"It's… beautiful is the best word to describe it," she said.

Jamie and I nodded.

"Everything that isn't necessary to getting what we want is gone," she said, eyes closing, as if she was vividly imagining. "There's an abundance of it all, thanks to science. Food is everywhere and it overflows and there's nothing to worry about because we have and we want and we take. We're, and by we I mean people, we're everywhere and we spill over into one another and we're all knit together, physically and mentally. It's an exquisite landscape of things that don't ever run out to see and touches and tastes and smells and mating and eating and mindless fighting and eating-mating and fighting-eating and fighting-"

"Okay," I said, interrupting. I paused, then when I couldn't think of what to say. "Okay."

Helen reached down to her plate, used a fingertip to wipe up a bit of frosting, and popped it into her mouth, sucking it off.

"Okay," I said, still at a bit of a loss for words.

"That's a mental image that's going to be with me forever," Jamie said, dropping his head down until his face was in his hands.

"I don't see where ethics come into that world," I said, more to see Jamie's reaction than out of curiosity.

"No," Jamie said. "Don't #Quote by Wildbow
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Francisco Varela
#27. There is a strong current in contemporary culture advocating ' holistic ' views as some sort of cure-all ... Reductionism implies attention to a lower level while holistic implies attention to higher level. These are intertwined in any satisfactory description: and each entails some loss relative to our cognitive preferences, as well as some gain ... there is no whole system without an interconnection of its parts and there is no whole system without an environment. #Quote by Francisco Varela
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Jose Marti
#28. Like bones to the human body, the axle to the wheel, the wing to the bird, and the air to the wing, so is liberty the essence of life. Whatever is done without it is imperfect. #Quote by Jose Marti
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Pema Chodron
#29. That nothing is static or fixed, that all is fleeting and impermanent, is the first mark of existence. It is the ordinary state of affairs. Everything is in process. Everything - every tree, every blade of grass, all the animals, insects, human beings, buildings, the animate and the inanimate - is always changing, moment to moment. We don't have to be mystics or physicists to know this. Yet at the level of personal experience, we resist this basic fact. It means that life isn't always going to go our way. It means there's loss as well as gain. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Saim .A. Cheeda
#30. God sends someone for each and every one of us to help with our loss. We just have to accept it. #Quote by Saim .A. Cheeda
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Jennifer Young
#31. Pause and remember - Every person is going through difficult hardships and growth. Let's be more conscious of this by being more patient, compassionate and understanding. #Quote by Jennifer Young
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
#32. His loss. I know a hell of a lot more about headstrong teenage girls than he does."
Colin gave her his most quelling look. "You're baiting him again."
Ryan studied first one of them and then the other. "What's going on with you two?"
"Nothing."
Unfortunately, they spoke together, automatically making them look like liars. Sugar Beth recovered first and handled the situation in her own way. "Relax, Ryan. Colin's done his best to get rid of me, but I'm blackmailing him with some unsavory facts I've unearthed about his past, which may or may not involve the ritual deaths of small animals, so if my body ends up in a ditch somewhere, tell the police to start their interrogations with him. Plus you might warn everybody to be careful with their cats. #Quote by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Christina Baker Kline
#33. Most people are remarkably resilient. Even those who have been through war or great loss often find reservoirs of strength. But the legacy of trauma is a heavy burden to bear. #Quote by Christina Baker Kline
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#34. Those who know how close the connection is between the state of mind of a man - his courage and hope, or lack of them - and the state of immunity of his body will understand that the sudden loss of hope and courage can have a deadly effect. The ultimate cause of my friend's death was that the expected liberation did not come and he was severely disappointed. This suddenly lowered his body's resistance against the latent typhus infection. His faith in the future and his will to live had become paralyzed and his body fell victim to illness - and thus the voice of his dream was right after all. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Melina Marchetta
#35. Most of the nicer guys have girlfriends, and we know this because they make it clear the moment we're introduced, as if to say, "Don't think about it." Those particular guys have absolutely no idea what to do with girls who aren't girlfriends, so at the moment they're at a bit of a dead loss in the friendship department. #Quote by Melina Marchetta
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Henri Frederic Amiel
#36. Feebleness of will brings about weakness of head, and the abyss, in spite of its horror, comes to fascinate us, as though it were a place of refuge. Terrible danger! For this abyss is within us; this gulf, open like the vast jaws of an infernal serpent bent on devouring us, is in the depth of our own being, and our liberty floats over this void, which is always seeking to swallow it up. #Quote by Henri Frederic Amiel
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Bo Belinsky
#37. Philadelphia fans would boo funerals, an Easter egg hunt, a parade of armless war vets and the Liberty Bell. #Quote by Bo Belinsky
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Leonora Carrington
#38. The long tentacles of vision and understanding have withdrawn and all that is left to me is the ragged black hole of my loss. Loss and the world around. A noisy puzzle whose solution is another puzzle noisier and more stupid. The circle widens toward nothing.
The answer is hiding somewhere, if I could only read. #Quote by Leonora Carrington
Loss Of Liberty quotes by William Cowper
#39. No wisdom that [my kitten] may gain by experience and reflection hereafter will compensate for the loss of her present hilarity. #Quote by William Cowper
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#40. The monetary managers are fond of telling us that they have substituted 'responsible money management' for the gold standard. But there is no historic record of responsible paper money management ... The record taken, as a whole is one of hyperinflation, devaluation and monetary chaos. #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Nicholas Tanek
#41. The entire spectrum of emotion is woven throughout this story, from love to loss, from happiness to bitterness, from arrogance to humiliation, and everything in between. At its core, this is a love story #Quote by Nicholas Tanek
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Michelle Obama
#42. I woke one night to find him staring at the ceiling, his profile lit by the glow of streetlights outside. He looked vaguely troubled, as if he were pondering something deeply personal. Was it our relationship? The loss of his father?
"Hey, what're you thinking about over there?" I whispered.
He turned to look at me, his smile a little sheepish. "Oh," he said. "I was just thinking about income inequality."
This, I was learning, was how Barack's mind worked. He got himself fixated on big and abstract issues, fueled by some crazy sense that he might be able to do something about them. It was new to me, I have to say. Until now, I'd hung around with good people who cared about important enough things but who were focused primarily on building their careers and providing for their families. Barack was just different. He was dialed into the day-to-day demands of his life, but at the same time, especially at night, his thoughts seemed to roam a much wider plane. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Cornel West
#43. Liberty, which means resisting all forms of cultural authoritarianism, be it from the right wing church, black ideologues, black nationalists, or mainstream white media. We have to accent liberty and freedom of expression and thought in all their forms. #Quote by Cornel West
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Brianna R. Shrum
#44. Though his heart denied it with every fiber of its being, his mind knew that home was no longer an option. And he didn't cry. He didn't fret. He lay there on the earth, realizing and accepting and hardening. That was the night that James Hook began to grow up. #Quote by Brianna R. Shrum
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Richard Henry Lee
#45. It must never be forgotten ... that the liberties of the people are not so safe under the gracious manner of government as by the limitation of power. #Quote by Richard Henry Lee
Loss Of Liberty quotes by James Patterson
#46. How many of us share the stories of our lives with our own children? What a loss to the children if we don't. #Quote by James Patterson
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Javier Pedro Zabala
#47. Luis, who knew the language of tears better than most men, was immobilized by the crystalline purity of the girl's sad story even more than by her radiant, vulnerable beauty. She wept as we will all weep when the world splits in two and the end has
finally arrived. Because love is the saddest thing when it goes away. Because love is unfathomable when one is wounded so deeply. Because in such moments love does not even truly exist. #Quote by Javier Pedro Zabala
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Parker J. Palmer
#48. The deeper our faith, the more doubt we must endure; the deeper our hope, the more prone we are to despair; the deeper our love, the more pain its loss will bring: these are a few of the paradoxes we must hold as human beings. If we refuse to hold them in the hopes of living without doubt, despair, and pain, we also find ourselves living without faith, hope, and love. #Quote by Parker J. Palmer
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Michael Shermer
#49. The price of liberty is, in addition to eternal vigilance, eternal patience with the vacuous blather occasionally expressed from behind the shield of free speech. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Thomas Sowell
#50. If politicians were serious about day care for children, instead of just sloganizing about it, nothing they could do would improve the quality of child care more than by lifting the heavy burden of taxation that forces so many families to have both parents working. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Loss Of Liberty quotes by James Madison
#51. That is not a just government, nor is property secure under it, where the property which a man has in his personal safety and personal liberty, is violated by arbitrary seizures of one class of citizens for the service of the rest. #Quote by James Madison
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#52. I froze. It was not guilt that froze me. I had taught myself never to feel guilt. It was not a ghastly sense of loss that froze me. I had taught myself to covet nothing. It was not a loathing of death that froze me. I had taught myself to think of death as a friend. It was not heartbroken rage against injustice that froze me. I had taught myself that a human being might as well look for diamond tiaras in the gutter as for rewards and punishments that were fair. It was not the thought that I was so unloved that froze me. I had taught myself to do without love. It was not the thought that God was cruel that froze me. I had taught myself never to expect anything from Him. What froze me was the fact that I had absolutely no reason to move in any direction. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#53. It was impossible to look forward when one was constantly being reminded of painful loss. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Paul Kalanithi
#54. Paul faced each stage of his illness with grace - not with bravado or a misguided faith that he would "overcome" or "beat" cancer but with an authenticity that allowed him to grieve the loss of the future he had planned and forge a new one. #Quote by Paul Kalanithi
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Justin Amash
#55. I follow a set of principles, I follow the Constitution. And that's what I base my votes on. Limited government, economic freedom and individual liberty. #Quote by Justin Amash
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#56. What she had begun to learn was the weight of liberty. Freedom is a heavy load, a great and strange burden for the spirit to undertake. It is not easy. It is not a gift given, but a choice made, and the choice may be a hard one. The road goes upward toward the light; but the laden traveler may never reach the end #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Loss Of Liberty quotes by Neil Gaiman
#57. Thus it was, that when the little hairy man arrived back from the village of Revelry (although why it was so called no man alive could say, for it was a gloomy, somber place, and had been for time out of mind) he found Tristran sitting glumly beside a hawthorn bush, wrapped in a blanket, and bewailing the loss of his hat. "They said cruel things about my true love," said Tristran. "Miss Victoria Forester. How dare they?" "The little folk dare anything," said his friend. "And they talks a lot of nonsense. But they talks an awful lot of sense, as well. You listen to 'em at your peril, and you ignore 'em at your peril, too. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Loss Of Liberty quotes by John Calvin
#58. Seeing God hath thus set us at liberty, what rashness it is for worms of the earth to make new laws; as though God had not been wise enough. #Quote by John Calvin
