Some Quotes On Freedom

American Flag

I was looking for a few patriotic quotes for the 4th of July, and I especially liked these:

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

Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better. –Albert Camus

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

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must […] undergo the fatigue of supporting it. –Thomas Paine

Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it. –George Bernard Shaw

These are obviously perfect for Independence Day, but I think they can also inspire you every day, year-round. Just think of “freedom” in terms of “freedom from regrets” or “freedom to be your best”, and maybe these quotes will motivate you towards a healthy, active lifestyle.
