    Take the freedom.

    Dreams are no good unless you have the freedom to pursue them.

    Of course, generally the 'utlimate sacrifice' is considered to be giving up your life for another, not 'dreams vs. freedom'.

    I'd take the freedom. Dreams are kind of pointless if you don't have the freedom to fulfill those dreams.

    Considering that in America freedom costs a $1.05, I'll take the dreams.

    What if my dreams included freedom? In a sense this question confuses me. Are we supposed to be answering from an oppressed viewpoint?

    "Spartans! tonight we dine in hell!" any way as Patrick Henry so eloquently put it " as for others i know not what course they may take but as for me give me liberty or give me death!"

    well if you have a goal or dream you might limit yourself to just that idea. so if you give up your dream you might broaden your horizons. "only until youve lost everything are you free to do anything"- fight club. yo.

    does this make sense?

    I'll take freedom.

    And if anyone tries to take it away from me, well, they'll be sorry.
