A few more thoughts on liberty and responsibility

There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them. 
-Denis Waitley

Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility. 
-Sigmund Freud

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

The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up. 

-John C. Maxwell

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of. 
-Jim Rohn

Freedom and responsibility aren't interconnected things. They are the same thing.
-Harry Browne
The aim of art, the aim of a life can only be to increase the sum of freedom and responsibility to be found in every man and in the world. It cannot, under any circumstances, be to reduce or suppress that freedom, even temporarily. No great work has ever been based on hatred and contempt. On the contrary, there is not a single true work of art that has not in the end added to the inner freedom of each person who has known and loved it.
-Albert Camus
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
-Ronald Reagan
