Hi, Does anybody know any patriotic quotes?

Hi, for the Fourth of July, i have been given the activity of decorating a little pin board with some patriotic qoutes. So if you could give the qoute and who said it, you would be my hero.LOL

“I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country”

-Nathan Hale

“America is therefore the land of the future, where, in the ages that lie before us, the burden of the World’s History shall reveal itself.”

– Georg W. Hegel

“Intellectually, I know that America is no better than any other country; emotionally I know she is better than every other country.”

-Sinclair Lewis

And, as much as it pains me

“America has never been united by blood or birth or soil. We are bound by ideals that move us beyond our backgrounds, lift us above our interests and teach us what it means to be citizens.”

-George W. Bush

4th of July Activities?

What are some inexpensive ways to celebrate the fourth of July. Hey guys and gals could you please also share the activites you do on the 4th of July.
I kind of want to stay home and get on the roof and watch the fireworks but thats at night time…so I need some ideas and activities do before then and Recipes if you could please….
Thanks all!

Okay, here’s what we do…I make a “to die for” chocolate cake the night before the fourth. We go to my husband’s brothers because out of six brothers,,,this is the rich one…He has three huge decks and a swimming pool, plus a pond….so it is fun to go there..

He grills the meat and we all bring side dishes…mine is dessert. After the kids play in the pool, we have our cookout. Then my husband and musicians and singers we know, all get together under the trees,,,we sit up a stage with mics and such…and everyone sings. One of his brothers and his wife, are a Gospel duo,,,my husband and the rich brother were in a band for years…first country and then Gospel… nieces all sing country…and all of them end up with old time rock and roll….”Build me up Buttercup” and Elvis songs being favorites…”Mustang Sally”..”Elvira”…that sort of thing…

then I usually wash dishes that are dirty, we use paper plates and cups but there is always dirty dishes, and I alway do them because no on else will start and I want to go home because I am tired..If I waited on one of my other Sister in laws,,,we would still be there at dark…so that is what we do….It really is a lot of fun though…my DH was a lead singer for years so he enjoys singing especially and it nice to hear the two of them be funny…they crack us up.

So that is what we do…Oh, and if the Casino puts on a fireworks display, some of the younger ones will go and watch that. I’m not sure if they have the display since Hurricane Katrina…We live on the Ms Gulf Coast.
