With Independence Day around the corner, we thought we would share some of our favorite quotes about our nation.
Liberty is always dangerous, but it is the safest thing we have. ~Harry Emerson Fosdick
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
For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail? ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Those who won our independence believed liberty to be the secret of happiness and courage to be the secret of liberty. ~Louis D. Brandeis
If our country is worth dying for in time of war let us resolve that it is truly worth living for in time of peace. ~Hamilton Fish
