Train of Thought - John Stuart Mill

"The only freedom deserving 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. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by sufering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest."

John Stuart Mill (1806-1873), On Liberty

The above is one of the new additions to the MTA's "Train of Thought" series. I recently confirmed that the MTA scrapped its 15-year old Poetry in Motion series. My heart aches. More on that later....
