July 4th 2020 quotes: Patriotic sayings, inspiration for Independence Day


Get ready to celebrate the red, white and blue.

Independence Day is July 4, a time when people celebrate America with food, fun and fireworks. And even though the coronavirus pandemic has changed many celebrations, we can still read and honor America and show our patriotic pride.

Here’s a look at some of the best July 4 quotes, patriotic sayings and inspiration:

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” – – Nelson Mandela

“We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.” – – William Faulkner

“Duty, honor, country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.” – – Gen. Douglas MacArthur

“I’d like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free and wanted other people to be also free.” – – Rosa Parks

“America has never been united by blood or birth or soil. We are bound by ideals that move us beyond our backgrounds, lift us above our interests and teach us what it means to be citizens.” – – President George W. Bush

“No dream is too big. No challenge is too great. Nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach.” – – President Donald Trump

“The clash of ideas is the sound of freedom.” – – Lady Bird Johnson

“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

“We, the People, recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights; that our destinies are bound together; that a freedom which only asks what’s in it for me, a freedom without a commitment to others, a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism, is unworthy of our founding ideals, and those who died in their defense.” – – President Barack Obama

“I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!” – – Patrick Henry

“I think patriotism is like charity — it begins at home.” – – Henry James

“Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong,” – – James Bryce

“Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.” – – President John F. Kennedy

“I venture to suggest that patriotism is not a short and frenzied outburst of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.” – – Adlai E. Stevenson

“The essence of America, that which really unites us, is not ethnicity or nationality or religion. It is an idea, and what an idea it is — that you can come from humble circumstances and do great things.” – – Condoleezza Rice

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” – – President Ronald Reagan

“Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals — yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us, and it is each generation’s responsibility to continue that work.” — Laura Bush

“America is another name for opportunity.” – – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America.” – – President Bill Clinton

“True patriotism hates injustice in its own land more than anywhere else.” – – Clarence Darrow

“In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.” – – President Franklin D. Roosevelt
