600 Quotations about Liberty and Power

This is a compilation of all the quotations about Liberty and Power which we have used since the site was launched in March 2004. This edition contains 600 quotations which have appeared up to the end of December 2018 (making the PDF version some 1354 pages long). Each week a new Quotation from one of the books in the OLL collection is added to the collection. The quotations are categorized by theme (there are 31 covering economic, political, and social theory, literature, history, philosophy, and so on), there is a brief commentary and explanation about the quote’s importance, and a link back to the text to enable the reader to explore the topic in more detail. The collection provides a useful survey of the history of classical liberal and libertarian thought over the past 500 years. See the front page of this site for the latest quote of the week.
