“ The human race is a monotonous affair. Most people spend the greatest part of their time working in order to live, and what little freedom remains so fills them with fear that they seek out any and every means to be rid of it. ”

Human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but ... life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.
The fear of suffering makes your life a half step. Freedom from the fear of suffering is needed for a full-stride life
When a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in, he has no choice but to become an outlaw.
Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, Where knowledge is free... into that heaven of freedom, my father, let my country awake.
