Famous quotes containing the word free:

    And I will wear what dresses I choose!
    And I will dance, and what’s to lose!
    I’m free of you, you little prick,
    and I’m the one can make it stick.
    Robert Creeley (b. 1926)

The permanent consciousness of power for effective action, the knowledge that their own thoughts have an equal chance with those of any other person ... this is what has always rendered the men of a free state so energetic, so acutely intelligent, so powerful.
    Mary Putnam Jacobi (1842–1906)

    You have waited, you always wait, you dumb, beautiful ministers,
    We receive you with free sense at last, and are insatiate
    hence-forward,
    Not you any more shall be able to foil us, or withhold yourselves
    from us,
    We use you, and do not cast you aside—we plant you permanently within us,
    We fathom you not—we love you—there is perfection in you also,
    You furnish your parts, toward eternity,
    Great or small, you furnish your parts toward the soul.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
