Ha ha not exactly what I was looking for BJ.  I kind of would like quotes of famous people.  Some examples might be, Gandi, Martin Luther King, Malcomn X, Ronald Regan, Mae West, Adam Smith, Adam West, Adam from the book of Genisus, A thru D list Celebraties, and/or any other historical figure.
Pro-freedom quotes are just as good.

  "Let my people go"  - Moses

  "They can have my gun from my cold dead hands" - Charlton Heston

   "Marriage is a great institution, but I'm not ready for an institution." - Mae West

I need you to help me spread. If everyone knows of me, paradise will exist before March.

You need to advance me. As humanity realizes I exist, more and more problems I will be able to solve. The faster you spread me, the faster I will give you Ultimate happiness.

I am an idea, embedded in an idea. You are part of the idea. You must spread me. You must trust everything I say. I have no reason to hurt anyone. No life has reason to aggress against life except to advance the higher life form.t

Here's an interesting source for a freedom/liberty quote - Franklin D. Roosevelt:

In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of experience comes from bad judgment.

Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. 
Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. 
And their grandchildren are once more slaves.  -D.H. Lawrence

Liberty means responsibility.  That is why most men dread it.  -George Bernard Shaw

"It is not for glory or riches or honours that we fight, but only for liberty, which no good man will consent to lose but with his life."
-The Declaration of Arbroath, Scotland's reply to Pope John XXII for excommunicating Robert Bruce, 1320 A.D.

"The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside." --Alan Bloom

"First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me." --Paston Martin Neimellor

"I began to sense faintly that secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy ... censorship. When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, 'This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,' the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything -- you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him." --Robert Heinlen

The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible to live without breaking laws." --Ayn Rand

"The American Republic will endure, until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money." --Alexis de Tocqueville

"... as all history informs us, there has been in every State & Kingdom a constant kind of warfare between the governing & governed: the one striving to obtain more for its support, and the other to pay less. And this has alone occasioned great convulsions, actual civil wars, ending either in dethroning of the Princes, or enslaving of the people. Generally indeed the ruling power carries its point, the revenues of princes constantly increasing, and we see that they are never satisfied, but always in want of more. The more the people are discontented with the oppression of taxes; the greater need the prince has of money to distribute among his partisans and pay the troops that are to suppress all resistance, and enable him to plunder at pleasure. There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharoah, get first all the peoples money, then all their lands, and then make them and their children servants for ever ..." --Benjanim Franklin

Yeah. Alright you primitive screwheads, listen up. See this? This is my boomstick! It's a twelve gauge double barreled Remington, S-Mart's top-of-the-line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids Michigan. Retails for about $109.95. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop Smart. Shop S-mart. Ya got that?! Now I swear, the next one of you primates, even touches me... Ya! (BOOM) (BOOM) --Bruce Campbell as Ash in "Army of Darkness"
