possessions.
John Locke

reason.
John Locke

Any single man must judge for himself whether circumstances warrant obedience or
resistance to the commands of the civil magistrate; we are all qualified, entitled, and morally

John Locke

Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what
we read ours.
John Locke

John Locke

The need to find true happiness is the foundation of our freedom.
John Locke

The Bible is one of the greatest blessings bestowed by God on the children of men. It has God
for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture for its matter. It is all pure,
all sincere; nothing too much; nothing wanting.
John Locke

Wherever law ends, tyranny begins.
John Locke

He that uses his words loosely and unsteadily will either not be minded or not understood.

Freedom of men under government is to have a standing rule to live by, common to every one
of that society and made by the legislative power vested in it and not to be subject to the
inconstant, uncertain, arbitrary will of another man.
John Locke
