Guardians

Famous quotes containing the word guardians:

    I believe in human liberty as I believe in the wine of life. There is no salvation for men in the pitiful condescension of industrial masters. Guardians have no place in a land of freemen.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    Let us enquire. Who, then, shall challenge the words? Why are they challenged. And by whom? By those who call themselves the guardians of morality, and who are the constituted guardians of religion. Enquiry, it seems, suits not them. They have drawn the line, beyond which human reason shall not pass—above which human virtue shall not aspire! All that is without their faith or above their rule, is immorality, is atheism, is—I know not what.
    Frances Wright (1795–1852)

    Sometimes I wonder if suicides aren’t in fact sad guardians of the meaning of life.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)
