Liberty and Patriotism

Dear Friend,

Today is July 4th, the day the United States commemorates liberty and patriotism. I realize that this date is not globally celebrated, nevertheless, it seemed like a good occasion to share some words about freedom from a selection of the world's great historical figures. It’s not a comprehensive selection by any means, and you may know of better quotes, but these seem particularly applicable in light of circumstances in the world today.

Success in life, liberty, and your pursuit of happiness,

P.S. - There are no featured products this week. Please check back next week for more great selections, discounts, and new products.

  • A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
    –Greek proverb
  • When I despair, I remember that all through history, the way of truth and love has always won. There have been murderers and tyrants, and for a time they can seem invincible. But in the end they always fall. Think of it, always.
    –Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948)
  • Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.
    –Abraham Lincoln, U.S. president (1809-1865)
  • Every society honors its live conformists and its dead troublemakers.
    –Mignon McLaughlin, author
  • I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made.
    –Franklin D. Roosevelt, U.S. president (1932)
  • The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
    –George Bernard Shaw, writer, Nobel laureate (1856-1950)
  • It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.
    –John Philpot Curran: Speech upon the Right of Election, 1790.
  • To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.
