The Path to Freedom - by Carl Sagan & Ann Druyan
View The Path to

The Path to Freedom

We must not believe the many, who say that only free people ought to be educated, but we should rather believe the philosophers who say that only the educated are free. – Epictetus, Roman philosopher and former slave, Discourses

Frederick Bailey was a slave. As a boy in Maryland in the 1820s, he had no mother or father to look after him. ('It is a common custom,' he later wrote, 'to part children from their mothers . . . before the child has reached its twelfth month.') He was one of countless millions of slave children whose realistic prospects for a hopeful life were nil.

Maxwell and The Nerds

Why should we subsidize intellectual curiosity?

– Ronald Reagan, campaign speech, 1980

There is nothing which can better deserve our patronage than the promotion of science and literature. Knowledge is in every country the surest basis of public happiness.

– George Washington, address to Congress, 8 January 1790
