May we think of freedom…

Some thoughts on freedom…

what does it mean to be “independent” and what does “freedom” mean?

 

“Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions,

the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed –

else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.”

– Dwight D. Eisenhower

 

“I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.

I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them;

if I find them too obnoxious, I break them.

I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.” – Robert A. Heinlein

 

“Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better.” – Albert Camus

 

“Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you.” Jean-Paul Sarte

 

“May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right.” – Peter Marshall

 

Happy 4th of July and Independence Day and may true and lasting God-given freedom reign in our hearts and in our homes and in our country and in our world.
