Dissent quotes

William O. Douglas
Restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us.

Sigmund Freud
Opposition is not necessarily enmity it is merely misused and made an occasion for enmity.

Will Durant
Continue to express your dissent and your needs, but remember to remain civilized, for you will sorely miss civilization if it is sacrified in the turbulence of change

John Wagstaff
Wherever there is a parliament, there must of necessity be an opposition.

Emily Dickinson
Assent - and you are sane - , demur - you're straightway dangerous - , and handled with a Chain - .

Benjamin Disraeli
No government can be long secure without a formidable opposition. It reduces their supporters to that tractable number which can be managed by the joint influences of fruition and hope. It offers vengeance to the discontented, and distinction to the ambitious and employs the energies of aspiring spirits, who otherwise may prove traitors in a division or assassins in a debate.

Theodore H. White
To go against the dominant thinking of your friends, of most of the people you see every day, is perhaps the most difficult act of heroism you can perform.

Howard Zinn
Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
