Quotes about Liberal Ideals

Winston Churchill said, "Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery."

Robert Frost said, “A liberal is man too broad-minded to take his own side in a quarrel.”

"However much I am at the mercy of the world I never let myself get lost by brooding over its misery. I hold firmly to the thought that each one of us can do a little to bring some portion of that misery to an end."
- Albert Schweitzer
