How true.

  1. I like the way that quote emphasises the importance of freedom, and makes it clear that there are things more important than security – it’s so easy to get trapped into thinking that security is the most important thing when you’re a bit scared, but I think “deserve” is a bit strong.

    Whether they deserve it or not, we should try to give each other freedom and security.

  2. Yeah I agree, the deserve is a bit strong, but I like the general sentiment, and it is encouraging to me, as I am strong on the freedom, weak on the security!
