Happy Independence Day!

To all my American peeps - have a fabulous 4th of July! And to my non-American friends who aren't celebrating today but dig freedom and equality for all people, here are some quotes about the topic:

People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.

Soren Kierkegaard
Danish philosopher (1813 - 1855)

The more freedom we enjoy, the greater the responsibility we bear, toward others as well as ourselves.

Oscar Arias Sanchez (1941 - )
Former President, Costa Rica, and 1987 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear.

Aung San Suu Kyi (1945 - )
Burmese political activist and 1991 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

That which you call your soul or spirit is your consciousness, and that which you call 'free will' is your mind's freedom to think or not, the only will you have, your only freedom, the choice that controls all the choices you make and determines your life and your character.

Ayn Rand (1905 - 1982), Atlas Shrugged
Philosopher and author

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

Abraham Lincoln (1809 - 1865)
16th President of the United States
