Sharpen your free-thinking mind with these 208 quotes about freedom

What does freedom mean to you? Being free or living free, what does it mean for you? From freedom of expression to collective freedom, the very principle of freedom is so vast and so essential that it has been a topic of debate for centuries. In this article, I am offering 208 quotes about freedom that you should read right away in order to sharpen your mind as a free thinker!

While most people agree about a certain number of fundamental freedoms, definitions of freedom by thinkers of today and yesterday – philosophers, essayists, political figures, leaders, spiritual teachers, artists and citizens – remain broad and disparate. Opinions diverge and conflicting ideas emerge when it comes to freedom because it touches on human subjectivity.


We can all agree on one point: all human beings aspire to live freely. Passionate combats for freedom, led by men and women from every corner of the world, bear witness to this. Freedom is demanded in slogans, songs and poetry. The world continues to research and change the contours and limits in a society that is in constant evolution. This freedom is taken, claimed and sometime lost only to be born again in a different way. It remains a burning topic on the lips of the people who debate about its meaning.

The 208 quotes in this article talk about individual freedom, collective freedom, freedom of expression and opinion, financial freedom and inner freedom. They lead us to think about how we can earn our freedom and experience it in society. In any case, these quotes are an expression of a call to freedom, this human need we all feel to live freely.
