A Few Choice Words …

… from Mr. Milton:

Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties.

None can love freedom heartily, but good men; the rest love not freedom, but license.

If we think we regulate printing, thereby to rectify manners, we must regulate all regulations and pastimes, all that is delightful to man.

The superior man acquaints himself with many sayings of antiquity and many deeds of the past, in order to strengthen his character thereby.

Now conscience wakes despair That slumber’d, wakes the bitter memory Of what he was, what is, and what must be Worse; of worse deeds worse sufferings must ensue!

Hope you enjoyed this portal into one of the finest minds in human history.
