Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July or July Fourth, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain.
  • The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence. - Denis Waitley

  • True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made. - Franklin D. Roosevelt

  • The four cornerstones of character on which the structure of this nation was built are: Initiative, Imagination, Individuality and Independence. - Eddie Rickenbacker

  • There is no dignity quite so impressive, and no one independence quite so important, as living within your means. - Calvin Coolidge
