FREEDOM

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

FREEDOM

Freedom comes from the knowledge of Truth. Liberty is not Freedom. Only knowing and being guided by truth can one gain Freedom. Liberty is license, the permission to act in any way, seemly or unseemly. Freedom is a state of being. It cannot be taken from anyone…

Stonewalls do not a prison make
Nor iron bars a cage;
Minds quiet and innocent take
That for a heritage.
If I have freedom in my love
And in my soul am free,
Angels alone that soar above
Enjoy such liberty__

Robert Lovelace

In its truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed. It must be earned.

— Franklin Roosevelt
