You can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.

— Robert A. Heinlein, “If This Goes On—”

We’re mortal — which is to say, we’re ignorant, stupid, and sinful — but those are only handicaps. Our pride is that nevertheless, now and then, we do our best. A few times we succeed. What more dare we ask for?

— Poul Anderson, Ensign Flandry

The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it.

— Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.

— Thomas Jefferson

(There’s a slightly overdone video also to be found on YouTube.)
