Some things never get old. Staring out at the ocean, a cold beer after a day on the beach, celebrating America’s Birthday with good food and friends. In celebration…some of my very favorite quotes on independence.
“The man who is aware of himself is henceforeward independent; and he is never bored, and life is only too short, and he is steeped through and through with a profound yet temperate happiness.” Virginia Wolf
“Unlike a drop of water that loses its identity when it joins the ocean, man does not lose his being in the society in which he lives. Man’s life is independent. He is born not for the development of the society alone, but for the development of his self.” B. R. Ambedkar
“Our founders got it right when they wrote in the Declaration of Independence that our rights come from nature and nature’s God, not from government.” Paul Ryan
“…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness….” The Declaration of Independence
Hope you find your happy today.
