Germany - A proverb for Freedom (LibertÓ)




Freiheit ist nicht das tun zu k÷nnen was man will,
sondern das nicht tun zu mŘssen, was man nicht will.


Freedom does not mean that you do what you want, but that you don't need to do what you don't want.



La libertÓ non consiste nel fare ci˛ che si vuole, ma nel non dover fare ci˛ che non si vuole.
