"You have to love a nation that celebrates it 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
"The United States is the only country with a known birthday." James G. Blaine
"For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail?" Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better." Albert Camus
"Where liberty dwells, there is my country." Benjamin Franklin
