"To refuse a hearing to an opinion, because they are sure that it is false, is to assume that their certainty is the same thing as absolute certainty. All silencing of discussion is an assumption of infallibility."

John Stuart Mill, On Liberty (1859)


"The only freedom which deserves the name, is that of pursuiting our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest."

John Stuart Mill, On Liberty (1859)


John Lee Hooker, Money (That's What I want) [1959]


"Truth gains more even by the errors of one who, with the due study and preparation thinks for himself, than by the true opinions of those who only hold them because they do not suffer themelves to think."

John Stuart Mill, On Liberty (1859)
