11 Liberty Quotes from Literature

That the choice for mankind lay between freedom and happiness, and that, for the great bulk of mankind, happiness was better. ~ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell "The liberty to live for self alone becomes in time a weary bondage." ~ The Rosary by Florence L. Barclay Peril, loneliness, an uncertain future, are not oppressive evils, so long as the frame is healthy and the faculties are employed; so long, especially, as Liberty lends us her wings, and Hope guides us by her star. ~ Villette by Charlotte Bronte She better liked to see him free and happy, even than to have him near her, because she loved him better than herself. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens Liberty is often a heavy burden on a man. It involves that necessity for perpetual choice which is the kind of labor men have always dreaded. ~ Elsie Venner by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. "I only ask to be free. The butterflies are free. Mankind will surely not deny to Harold Skimpole what it concedes to the butterflies." ~ Bleak House by Charles Dickens "There can be no freedom or beauty about a home life that depends on borrowing and debt." ~ A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen "Chivalry!---why, maiden, she is the nurse of pure and high affection---the stay of the oppressed, the redresser of grievances, the curb of the power of the tyrant ---Nobility were but an empty name without her, and liberty finds the best protection in her lance and her sword." ~ Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott "I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being with an independent will." ~ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte "You know, there are two good things in life, freedom of thought and freedom of action." ~ Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham
