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…
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.
I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.
We must all hang together, or most assuredly, we will all hang separately.
Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.
Enemies in war, in peace, friends.
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.
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?
