„We must believe in free will — we have no choice.“

—  Isaac Bashevis Singer, An ironic statement which Singer made in many interviews over many years; here quoted in "Isaac Singer’s Promised City" http://www.city-journal.org/html/7_3_urbanities-isaac.html City Journal (Summer 1997) Variants or variant translations: We must believe in free will — we have no other choice. You must believe in free will; there is no choice. We have to believe in free will. We’ve got no choice. This makes more sense if you consider the statement "we must believe in free will; we have no [other logical] choice"

„We need a free press. We must have it. It's vital. If“

—  John McCain politician from the United States 1936
Context: I hate the press; I hate you especially. But the fact is we need you. We need a free press. We must have it. It's vital. If you want to preserve - I'm very serious now - if you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and many times adversarial press. And without it, I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time. That's how dictators get started. They get started by suppressing free press. In other words, a consolidation of power. When you look at history, the first thing that dictators do is shut down the press... [W]e need to learn the lessons of history. As quoted in "McCain says suppressing free press is 'how dictators get started'" http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-mccain-idUSKBN15Y07R?feedType=RSS&feedName=topNews&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=Social (19 February 2017), Reuters

„We still have a choice today: nonviolent coexistence or violent coannihilation. We must move past indecision to action.“

—  Martin Luther King, Jr. American clergyman, activist, and leader in the American Civil Rights Movement 1929 - 1968
Context: We still have a choice today: nonviolent coexistence or violent coannihilation. We must move past indecision to action. We must find new ways to speak for peace in Vietnam and justice throughout the developing world, a world that borders on our doors. If we do not act, we shall surely be dragged down the long, dark, and shameful corridors of time reserved for those who possess power without compassion, might without morality, and strength without sight.
