On Freedom and Liberty

  • "Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes."

  • "Live as if your were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."

  • "To forgive is not to forget. The merit lies in loving in spite of the vivid knowledge that the one that must be loved is not a friend. There is no merit in loving an enemy when you forget him for a friend."
Mahatma Gandhi

    thanks for nudging my views up to a healthy 3, time for some advertising me thinks.
