Happy 4th of July! Fun and Inspirational Quotes

Saturday, July 04, 2009

Happy 4th everyone! I hope you are enjoying your day. The photo on the left is one of my favorite places to watch fireworks--the Queen Mary, in Long Beach, CA. I'm going there tonight to watch my friend's fire-dancing troop perform. Hopefully, before then, I'll find some good barbecues or picnics to crash. ;) In the meantime, enjoy some patriotic quotes!


"The United States is the only country with a known birthday." ~ James G. Blaine

"In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved." ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

"You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism." ~ Erma Bombeck

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

"I have always been among those who believed that the greatest freedom of speech was the greatest safety, because if a man is a fool, the best thing to do is to encourage him to advertise the fact by speaking." ~ Woodrow T. Wilson

"There, I guess King George will be able to read that." ~ John Hancock, after signing the Declaration of Independence
