Freedom Quotes:

"Books were my pass to personal freedom. I learned to read at age three, and soon discovered there was a whole world to conquer that went beyond our farm in Mississippi." 
~ Oprah Winfrey 

 "Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility. For the person who is unwilling to grow up, the person who does not want to carry is own weight, this is a frightening prospect." 
~ Eleanor Roosevelt

"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."

~ George Washington

"Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves. "

~ Abraham Lincoln

May your own 4th of July be filled with joy and happiness. If you're celebrating today, make it a safe holiday.
