In the struggle for the defense of human freedom, everything depends on the vitality of the belief in man, on the health and vigor of the human things;  and there is no way to maintain the human things but to know them…  A free man is a man who knows and loves the things of which a man in freedom is capable.  Only those who know what a man can be at his best, in his arts, in his conceptions, in his imagination and his realization, are capable of valuing freedom, and only those who are capable of valuing freedom are likely to defend it.
