    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteEvery young sculptor seems to think that he must give the world some specimen of indecorous womanhood, and call it Eve, Venus, a Nymph, or any name that may apologize for a lack of decent clothing.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteFREEDOM, n. Exemption from the stress of authority in a beggarly half dozen of restraint's infinite multitude of methods. A political condition that every nation supposes itself to enjoy in virtual monopoly. Liberty. The distinction between freedom and liberty is not accurately known; naturalists have never been able to find a living specimen of either.



Freedom, as every schoolboy knows, Once shrieked as Kosciusko fell; On every wind, indeed, that blows I hear her yell.



She screams whenever monarchs meet, And parliaments as well, To bind the chains about her feet And toll her knell.



And when the sovereign people cast The votes they cannot spell, Upon the pestilential blast Her clamors swell.



For all to whom the power's given To sway or to compel, Among themselves apportion Heaven And give her Hell. --Blary O'Gary

 Ambrose Bierce quotes (American Writer, Journalist and Editor, 1842-1914)
