Happy Fourth Of July!


From all us here at Niner Noise, we wish a Happy Fourth of July to all San Francisco 49er fans everywhere! And even if you are not a Niners fan, shame on you, we still wish a grand and Happy Fourth of July as well.

Have fun today, but remember to be safe whether it’s handling fireworks or drinking some good ol’ American beer. Below are some awesome quotes about freedom and the Fourth of July. Happy Independence Day!

Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation and freedom in all just pursuits. ~ Thomas Jefferson

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. Roosevelt

Those who won our independence believed liberty to be the secret of happiness and courage to be the secret of liberty.  ~ Louis D. Brandeis

Liberty is the breath of life to nations.  ~ George Bernard Shaw

“In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.  You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.  ~ Erma Bombeck
