Happy Independence Day!


Here are some great quotes about Independence, Liberty, and Freedom!




"But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations.... This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution." — John Adams


“What light is to the eyes, what air is to the lungs, what love is to the heart — liberty is to the soul of man.” — Robert Green Ingersoll

"Courage, then, my countrymen, our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty." — Samuel Adams


“We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.” — William Faulkner


“How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!” — Thomas Jefferson

“There is no such thing as a little freedom. Either you are all free or you are not free.” — Walter Cronkite

“Where liberty dwells, there is my country.” — Benjamin Franklin


Happy Independence Day!
