Independence - Freedom - Liberty


Have a joyful American Independence Day.

We hold these truths to be self-evident:
that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights,
among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
- Thomas Jefferson [Declaration of Independence, and inscribed in the Jefferson Memorial]

Those who won our independence...
valued liberty as an end and as a means.
They believed liberty to be the secret of happiness
and courage to be the secret of liberty.
- Louis D. Brandeis

The only thing necessary for evil to triumph
is for enough good men to do nothing.
- Edmund Burke

If liberty and equality, as is thought by some,
are chiefly to be found in democracy,
they will be best attained when all persons alike share
in government to the utmost.
- Aristotle

Toleration and liberty are the foundations of a great republic.
- Frank Lloyd Wright
