Liberal Quotes (535 Quotes)

    Be composed--be at ease with me--I am Walt Whitman, liberal and lusty as Nature, Not till the sun excludes you do I exclude you, Not till the waters refuse to glisten for you and the leaves to rustle for you, do my words refuse to glisten and rustle for you.

    Education Many believe our entire public-education establishment is going in exactly the wrong direction.
