Famous quotes containing the word free:
“You want to be free and break new ground, speak your mind, fear no man, have the neighbours acknowledge that youre a good man; and at the same time you want to be a success, make money, join the country club, get the votes and kick the other man in the teeth and off the ladder.”
—Christina Stead (19021983)
