It was that which gave promise that in due time the weights should be lifted from the shoulders of all men, and that all should have an equal chance. This is the sentiment embodied in that Declaration of Independence.
Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.
Freedom is never dear at any price. It is the breath of life. What would a man not pay for living?
Do not destroy that immortal emblem of humanity, the Declaration of Independence.
The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.
He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from opposition; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach himself.
Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.
Freedom is not the right to do what we want, but what we ought. Let us have faith that right makes might and in that faith let us; to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it.
In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the free – honorable alike in what we give and what we preserve.
The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep’s throat, for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty.
Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.
Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.
George Bernard Shaw
If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.
Let freedom reign. The sun never set on so glorious a human achievement.
We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.
The United States was born in revolution and nurtured by struggle. Throughout our history, the American people have befriended and supported all those who seek independence and a better way of life.
Liberty is maintained by responsible freedom.
Roger W Hancock
Your freedom is brought to you courtesy of the outstanding Men and Women who serve and have served this country with honor, dedication, pride and sacrifice!
Humanity has won its battle. Liberty now has a country.
Marquis de Lafayette
This Independence Day, remind us that we have the freedom to become more culturally competent and free for business, finance and social human sake.
Carl William Brown
Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better.
In the summer of 1776 our Founding Fathers sought to secure our independence and the liberties that remain the foundation of our nation today.
God give us peace without peace we are without freedom.
Ellen J. Barrier
Life without liberty is like a body without spirit.
Those who won our independence believed liberty to be the secret of happiness and courage to be the secret of liberty.
Liberty, taking the word in its concrete sense, consists in the ability to choose.
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.
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
John F. Kennedy
Independence doesn’t mean you decide the way you want.
True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.
Let freedom never perish in your hands.
Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.
The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission.
John F. Kennedy
The unity of freedom has never relied on uniformity of opinion.
John F. Kennedy
Freedom is but the possibility of a various and indefinite activity; while government, or the exercise of dominion, is a single, yet real activity. The longing for freedom, therefore, is at first only too frequently suggested by the deep-felt consciousness of its absence.
Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt
Freedom lies in being bold.
Better to die fighting for freedom then be a prisoner all the days of your life.
Freedom is never given; it is won.
A. Philip Randolph
The will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect its free expression should be our first object.
Enjoy the peace your valor won. Let independence be our boast, Ever mindful what it cost; Ever grateful for the prize, Let its altar reach the skies!
For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
Independence means enjoying freedom and empowering others too to let them do so.
