The history of our country, like all history, illustrates the might of Mind, and shows human power to be proportionate to its embodiment of right thinking.  A few immortal sentences, breathing the omnipotence of divine justice, have been potent to break despotic fetters and abolish the whipping-post and slave market; but oppression neither went down in blood, nor did the breath of freedom come from the cannon’s mouth.  Love is the liberator.  Mary Baker Eddy

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed – else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.  Dwight D. Eisenhower

In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.  Franklin D. xalamay veteran & flag flickrRoosevelt

Citizens of the world, accept the “glorious liberty of the children of God,” and be free!  This is your divine right.  Mary Baker Eddy
