     - Emma Goldman
  • The world is all messed up. The nation is sick. Trouble is in the land. Confusion all around. That's a strange statement. But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough, can you see the stars. And I see God working in this period of the twentieth century in a way that men, in some strange way, are responding - something is happening in our world. The masses of people are rising up. And wherever they are assembled today, whether they are in Johannesburg, South Africa; Nairobi, Kenya; Accra, Ghana; New York City; Atlanta, Georgia; Jackson, Mississippi; or Memphis, Tennessee - the cry is always the same - "We want to be free."
     - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I've Been to the Mountaintop
  • In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility. I welcome it.
     - John F. Kennedy, Inaugural Address, 1961
  • The government is an artificial creation based on fear and force. You don't have to take my word for that, because the first President of the United States said 'The government is based on force', and the second President of the United States said 'The government is based on fear'.
     - Judge Andrew Napolitano, Campaign for Liberty speech
  • A true rebellion, a true revolution, begins when you quit following, and start leading. And those that end up following you, should be taught by you to quit following you and start leading. And the only way to lead successfully is by fully understanding your rights as a human being in this world.
     - Ben Stewart, Esoteric Agenda
  • If I want to find out anything, I'm not going to read Time magazine, I'm not going to read Newsweek. I'm not going to read any of these magazines. I mean, because they've just got too much to lose by printing the truth. You know that….Really the truth is just a plain picture.
     - Bob Dylan, Interview with Time Magazine
  • I killed the Bank.
     - Andrew Jackson, when asked about his greatest achievement on his deathbed
