John Stuart Mill Liberty, Freedom and Happiness

The liberty of the individual must be thus far limited; he must not make himself a nuisance to other people.

The only freedom which deserves the name is that of pursuing our own good, in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it.

I have learned to seek my happiness by limiting my desires, rather than in attempting to satisfy them.

John Stuart Mill
