4th of July

You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence.
– Charles A. Beard, 1874 – 1948

It is my living sentiment, and by the blessing of God it shall be my dying sentiment, independence now and independence forever.
– Daniel Webster, eulogy for John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, 2 August 1826

Independence? That’s middle class blasphemy. We are all dependent on one another, every soul of us on earth.
– George Bernard Shaw, 1856 – 1950

When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir.
– Martin Luther King, Jr, 1929 – 1968

I often warn people: Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team.’ What you should tell them is, ‘Maybe not. But there is an “I” in independence, individuality and integrity.’
– George Carlin, 1937 – 2008

I valued my independence from an early age and was always something of a individualist. Well, a show-off anyway.
– Alice Roosevelt Longworth, 1884 – 1980
