„I have always been strong for a large increase of labour representation in the House of Commons... Now, I dare say the day may come— it may come sooner than some think— when the Liberal party will be transformed or superseded by some new party; but before the working population of this country have their destinies in their own hands, as they will assuredly do within a measurable distance of time, there is enough ground to be cleared which only the Liberal party is capable of clearing. The ideal of the Liberal party is that view of things which believes that the welfare of all is bound up with injustice being done to none. Above all, according to the ideal of the Liberal party— that party from which I beseech you, not for my sake, but for your own, not to sever yourselves— the ideal of the Liberal party is this— that in the mass of the toilers on land all the fountains of national life abide and the strongest and most irresistible currents flow.“

— John Morley, Speech in Newcastle (21 May 1894), quoted in 'Mr. Morley At Newcastle', The Times (22 May 1894), p. 11.

„I think that the principle of the Conservative Party is jealousy of liberty and of the people, only qualified by fear; but I think the principle of the Liberal Party is trust in the people, only qualified by prudence.“

„Liberalism is extremely harmful in a revolutionary collective. It is a corrosive which eats away unity, undermines cohesion, causes apathy and creates dissension. It robs the revolutionary ranks of compact organization and strict discipline, prevents policies from being carried through and alienates the Party organizations from the masses which the Party leads. It is an extremely bad tendency.“

— Mao Zedong Chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China 1893 - 1976
