Independence Day is has arrived and I have been thinking about our founding fathers, and the of this country’s independence.

So I have decided to share with you some of my favorite Revolutionary war or founding fathers quotes. So here goes:

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
~the final words of the Declaration of Independence

How soon we forget history…
~George Washington

That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States.
~the Lee Resolution

I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.
~Thomas Jefferson 

I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.
~Nathan Hale

We must all hang together, or most assuredly, we will all hang separately.
~Benjamin Franklin

Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.
~Captain Parker

Enemies in war, in peace, friends.
~Thomas Jefferson

The duty of a patriot is to protect his country from its government.
~Attributed to Thomas Paine

You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom i hope you will make good use of it.
~John Adams

I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth- that God Governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?
~Benjamin Franklin

 

Happy Independence Day!
