“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”
? George Orwell

“If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”
? George Washington

“Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear."

[Special Message to the Congress on the Internal Security of the United States, August 8, 1950]”
? Harry S. Truman

“Proclaim the truth and do not be silent through fear.”
? Catherine of Siena

“If you're not going to use your free speech to criticize your own government, then what the hell is the point of having it?”
? Michel Templet

“Restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us."

[The One Un-American Act, Speech to the Author's Guild Council in New York, on receiving the 1951 Lauterbach Award (December 3, 1952)]”
? William O. Douglas

“The problem with today’s world is that everyone believes they have the right to express their opinion AND have others listen to it.

The correct statement of individual rights is that everyone has the right to an opinion, but crucially, that opinion can be roundly ignored and even made fun of, particularly if it is demonstrably nonsense!”
? Brian Cox

“If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all.”
? Noam Chomsky

“Confidence is knowing who you are and not changing it a bit because of someone’s version of your reality is not their reality.”
? Shannon L. Alder

“When you are no longer afraid is when you can be yourself.”
? Shannon L. Alder

Freedom of speech means freedom for those who you despise, and freedom to express the most despicable views. It also means that the government cannot pick and choose which expressions to authorize and which to prevent."
Alan Dershowitz
