Liberty Quote Of The Day: Alexis de Toqueville

We here at TILB will be loosely rolling out a new (somewhat) daily posting that simply highlights a favored quote about liberty, effort, and other noteworthy topics called our Liberty Quote of the Day.

Our first quote comes from Alexis de Toqueville's great Democracy in America:
Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.
