Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being.  With freedom comes responsibility.  For the person who is unwilling to grow up, the person who does not want to carry his own weight, this is a frightening prospect.

Freedom

Freedom is
the very law of life,
life itself
is rooted in freedom
We are not
machines.
We are not
pre-programmed.
We are utter freedoms.
Now it is up to us,
what to make of it.
You have to take
your life into
your own hands,
and you
are responsible for it.
No fate is responsible.
You have to
create yourself
by your own effort.
The total responsibility
is yours.
   —  Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
[Yes, I know this is a quote from a discredited “cult” religious figure / leader.  But, that does not make the words themselves less interesting.  —  KMAB]

Today, as always, the people, no less than the courts, must remain vigilant to preserve the principals of our Bill of Rights, lest in our desire to be secure we lose our ability to be free.
  —  Earl Warren
Former Chief Justice
United States Supreme Court
[Note the use of the word “principals” instead of “principles”.  This indicates superior position rather than “simply” equally important opinions and conditions.  To quote Benjamin Franklin: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”   —  KMAB]
