Happy Freedom Week!
How are you celebrating the 4th?
We have no real traditions for Independence Day. This year we've planned a four day camping trip! I'm so excited to disappear from regular life and enjoy time with my family.
For today, simply enjoy some excellent quotes on freedom...
- For He that worketh high and wise.
- Nor pauses in his plan,
- Will take the sun out of the skies
- Ere freedom out of man.
RALPH WALDO EMERSON, Ode Sung in the Town Hall
Individual liberty is individual power, and as the power of a community is a mass compounded of individual powers, the nation which enjoys the most freedom must necessarily be in proportion to its numbers the most powerful nation.
JOHN QUINCY ADAMS, letter to James Lloyd, Oct. 1, 1822To be true to one’s own freedom is, in essence, to honor and respect the freedom of all others.
DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER, State of the Union Address, Feb. 2, 1953
Enjoy your day, your week, your celebrations!
Enjoy your freedom!
