Weekend Wisdom: 4th of July

Great quotes from quotegarden.com to celebrate the 4th of July.

Let freedom never perish in your hands.  

Joseph Addison

Freedom’s natal day is here.
Fire the guns and shout for freedom,
See the flag above unfurled!
Hail the stars and stripes forever,
Dearest flag in all the world. 

Florence A. Jones


This, then, is the state of the union:  free and restless, growing and full of hope.  So it was in the beginning.  So it shall always be, while God is willing, and we are strong enough to keep the faith. 

Lyndon B. Johnson
