“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” 

Nelson Mandela

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.” 

Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“Freeing yourself was one thing, claiming ownership of that freed self was another.” 

Toni Morrison, Beloved

“Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.” 

Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own

“Better to die fighting for freedom then be a prisoner all the days of your life.” 

Bob Marley

“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.” 

Coco Chanel

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.” 


“When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.” 

Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man

Time reveals truth. Freedom transcends illusion.

Happy New Year …. 2020 … It will be so sweet!
