„If a country can't save itself through the volunteer service of its own free people, then I say : Let the damned thing go down the drain!“

—  Robert A. Heinlein American science fiction author 1907 - 1988
Context: I also think there are prices too high to pay to save the United States. Conscription is one of them. Conscription is slavery, and I don't think that any people or nation has a right to save itself at the price of slavery for anyone, no matter what name it is called. We have had the draft for twenty years now; I think this is shameful. If a country can't save itself through the volunteer service of its own free people, then I say : Let the damned thing go down the drain! Guest of Honor Speech at the 29th World Science Fiction Convention, Seattle, Washington (1961) The Quotable Heinlein http://www.quotableheinlein.com/html/home.html

„Free as a bird to settle where I will.“

—  William Wordsworth English Romantic poet 1770 - 1850
Context: Oh there is blessing in this gentle breeze, A visitant that while it fans my cheek Doth seem half-conscious of the joy it brings From the green fields, and from yon azure sky. Whate'er its mission, the soft breeze can come To none more grateful than to me; escaped From the vast city, where I long had pined A discontented sojourner: now free, Free as a bird to settle where I will. Bk. I, l. 1.
