"No matter what the subject may be, there is only one course for the beginner; he must
at first accept a discipline imposed from without, but only as the means of obtaining
freedom for, and strengthening himself in, his own method of expression."
"Liberalism implies particularly freedom of thought, freedom from orthodox dogma,
the right of others to think differently from one's self. It implies a free mind,
open to new ideas and willing to give attentive consideration...
When I say liberty, I mean liberty of the individual to think his own thoughts and
live his own life as he desires to think and live."
Senator Robert A. Taft
