Another Birthday for the Land that I Love

Is life so dear, or peace so sweet , as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almightly God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me: Give me liberty, or give me death!
~Patrick Henry

How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!
~Thomas Jefferson

It is my living sentiment, and by the blessing of God it shall be my dying sentiment, independence now and independence forever.
~Daniel Webster

Where liberty dwells, there is my country.
~Benjamin Franklin

My patriotic heart beats red, white, and blue.
~Author Unknown

I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.
~Abraham Lincoln

Sure I wave the American flag. Do you know a better flag to wave? Sure I love my country with all her faults. I'm not ashamed of that, never have been, never will be.
~John Wayne

O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation! Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation. Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto: "In God is our trust." And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave! ~Francis Scott Key

Happy Birthday America!
