A Quote by William Ellery Channing on mind, slavery, and society

I call that mind free which protects itself against the usurpations of society, which does not cower to human opinion, which feels itself accountable to a higher tribunal than man's, which respects itself too much to be the slave of the many or the few.

William Ellery Channing (1780 - 1842)
