Freedom Friday: Happy 4th of July


Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty. ---John F. Kennedy
We are not weak if we make proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power...The battle, sir, is no to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. ---Patrick Henry
Double--no triple--our troubles and we'd still be better off than any other people on earth. ---Ronald Reagan
FREEDOM--no word was ever spoken that has held our greater hope, demanded greater sacrifice, needed to be nurtured, blessed more the giver, damned more its destroyer, or come closer to being God's will on earth. And I think that's worth fighting for, if necessary. ---General Omar N. Bradley
A nation is formed by the willingness of each of us to share in the responsibility for upholding the common good. ---Barbara Jordan
You can gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face...You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.---Eleanor Roosevelt
Courage is the price life exacts for granting peace. ---Amelia Earhart
Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. ---Thomas Paine
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. ---Thomas Jefferson
God, who gave us life, gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever.
---Thomas Jefferson
