    thought this is how it should go:
    "life is great when love is something money can buy and for sake of freedom, we have to choose either one." by pokiemon

    The freedom here is not referring to the individuals, I think this saying is start from the turn of century, when the new China is reforming, at that time, people willing to sacrifice many things for the freedom of their country.

    时势造英雄, 英雄造时势

    you have to wait for some thing very terrible happen to our country to see how this saying turn alive.

    生命诚可贵
    爱情价更高
    若为自由故
    两者皆可抛

    I was surprised even though I knew this many years ago.

    freedom is a state of mind, you don't have to let go of anything, or anyone, but yourself.
