theme thursday - equal

Liberté, Equalité, Fraternité

If you want to be free, there is but one way; it is to guarantee an equally full measure of liberty to all your neighbors. There is no other.
Carl Schurz 1829 - 1906

“The secret of happiness is freedom. The secret of freedom is courage.”
Thucydides 460 - 404 BC

All this talk about equality. The only thing people really have in common is that they are all going to die.
Bob Dylan 1941 -

People are pretty much alike. It's only that our differences are more susceptible to definition than our similarities.
Linda Ellerbee 1944 -

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
Martin Luther King, Jr 1929 - 1968

The free man must be born before freedom can be won, and the brotherly man must be born before full brotherhood can be won. It will come into being only if we build it out of our very muscle and bone - by trying to act it out.
Barbara Deming 1917 - 1984
