Happy Independence Day

We stand for freedom. That is our conviction for ourselves; that is our only commitment to others. - John F. Kennedy

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. - Ronald Reagan

Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it. - George Bernard Shaw

An Englishman is a person who does things because they have been done before. An American is a person who does things because they haven't been done before. - Mark Twain

People demand freedom of speech as compensation for the freedom of thought they seldom use. - Soren Kierkegaard

The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves. - William Hazlitt

In the United States there is more space where nobody is than where anybody is. That is what makes America what it is. - Gertrude Stein

Real freedom lies in wilderness, not in civilization. - Charles Lindbergh

I see America, not in the setting sun of a black night of despair ahead of us, I see America in the crimson light of a rising sun fresh from the burning, creative hand of God. I see great days ahead, great days possible to men and women of will and vision. - Carl Sandburg
