Happy Independence Day!

Here are a few favorite quotes from founding fathers...

I would rather be troubled by the inconveniences of attending too much liberty than attending too small a degree of it. - Jefferson

Determine never to be idle...It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing. - Jefferson

Those who would give up liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Franklin

Wish not so much to live long but to live well. - Franklin

Labor to keep alive in your chest that little spark of celestial fire called conscience. - Washington

I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most envious of all titles, the character of an honest man. - Washington
