Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.
We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.
A day, an hour, of virtuous liberty is worth a whole eternity in bondage.
All we have of freedom - all we use or know - this our fathers bought for us, long and long ago.
AMERICA IS BEAUTIFUL! If you don't believe it,
just stop and ask yourself why we have some many people
trying to get into this place!
America is the greatest, freest and most decent society in existence. It is an oasis of goodness in a desert of cynicism and barbarism. This country, once an experiment unique in the world, is now the last best hope for the world.

And they flew.

Freedom is not the right to do as you please, but the liberty to do as you ought.
Freedom is the oxygen of the soul.
Freedom isn't Free
Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things.
Grace is not a license to sin, but to walk in humility in the sight of God. Grace frees us to be active in the works of God. We are not tied up with how much we have done, or not done, but we learn by the grace of God to rest in His love.

I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people, whose jsut powers are derived from the
consent of the govenrned; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect Union, on and inseparable; extablished
upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.
I have not yet begun to fight.
I know where I'm going and I know the truth, and I don't have to be what you want me to be. I'm free to be what I want.

It's Friday night, got visions in my head of nothing on my mind, so let the music play...
Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well wisher to his posterity, swear by the blood of the Revolution, never to violate in the least particular, the laws of the country; and never to tolerate their violation by others.
Let freedom ring!
Let's Celebrate the USA

--John Quincy Adams
Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Smile, it's the least you can do!
The moment we choose to love we begin to move towards freedom...
The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing...Say a prayer for all those who stand up for what's fair and moral.
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.
Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
Truth has no special time of its own. Its hour is now - always.
We, the people of the United States
in order to form a more perfect union,
establish justice, insure domestic tranquility,
provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessing of liberty
to ourselves and our posterity,
do ordain and establish
this Constitution for the United States of America.
When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.
Without forgiveness life is governed by...an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation.
Work like you don't need the money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
Dance like nobody's watching.
Sing like nobody's listening.
Live like it's Heaven on Earth.
You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make good use of it! If you do not I shall repent it in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it!
