A Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupery on liberty, freedom, meaning, and path

There is no liberty except the liberty of some one making his way towards something.  Such a man can be set free if you will teach him the meaning of thirst, and how to trace a path to a well.  Only then will he embark upon a course of action that will not be without significance.  You could not liberate a stone if there were no law of gravity - for where will the stone go, once it is quarried?
