“I have always strenuously supported the right of every man to his own
opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine. He who
denies another this right makes a slave of himself to his present
opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing it.”
                                                                        — Thomas Paine, 1783

“Free speech exercised both individually and through a free press, is
a necessity in any country where people are themselves free.”
                                                                        — Theodore Roosevelt, 1918

“The truth is found when men are free to pursue it.”
                                                                        — Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1936

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people
what they do not want to hear.”
                                                                        — George Orwell, 1945

“Any time we deny any citizen the full exercise of his constitutional
rights, we are weakening our own claim to them.”
                                                                        — Dwight David Eisenhower, 1963

“What is objectionable, what is dangerous about extremists is not that
they are extreme, but that they are intolerant.”
                                                                        — Robert F. Kennedy, 1964

“Go fuck yourself.”
                                                                        — Dick Cheney, 2004
