A Quote by Ignazio Silone on authority, liberty, literature, mistakes, politics, possibility, and religion

Liberty is the possibility of doubting, the possibility of making a mistake, the possibility of searching and experimenting, the possibility of saying No to any authority-literary, artistic, philosophic, religious, social and even political.
