The First Bikini, Presidential Deaths and Other Events That Occurred Around Independence Day

Maria Vultaggio - IBTimes
go to original
July 4, 2016

Americans celebrate the country’s birthday on the Fourth of July, gathering with family and friends year after year. As you mark Independence Day 2016 with them, here’s a compilation of inspiring quotations focused on freedom and its trappings:

• Ralph Waldo Emerson: “For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail?”

• Albert Einstein: “Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.”

• Martin Luther King Jr.: “In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline.”

• Mahatma Gandhi: “Freedom is never dear at any price. It is the breath of life. What would a man not pay for living?”

• Thomas Paine: “Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.”

• Simone de Beauvoir: “I wish that every human life might be pure transparent freedom.”

• Argus Hamilton: “The Fourth of July marks the 240th anniversary of our independence from the UK. Today Americans and the Brits are having a competition to see who can be the center of the universe and have everyone’s attention at all times. Britain is leading, but America has a Trump card.”
