Quotes of the Day - freedom's poetry

Two QsOTD as I continue pouring over the City of Toledo budget...not happy reading, that's for sure.

"Yes! to this thought I hold with firm persistence;
The last result of wisdom stamps it true;
He only earns his freedom and existence
Who daily conquers them anew."

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"We grant no dukedoms to the few,
We hold like rights and shall;
Equal on Sunday in the pew,
On Monday in the mall.
For what avail the plough or sail,
Or land, or life, if freedom fail?"

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
