This is IMDb‘s Quote of the Day, from the movie Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. Imagine Jimmy Stewart’s voice as you read this…
You see, boys forget what their country means by just reading The Land of the Free in history books. Then they get to be men they forget even more.
Liberty’s too precious a thing to be buried in books, Miss Saunders. Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: I’m free to think and to speak. My ancestors couldn’t, I can, and my children will. Boys ought to grow up remembering that.
Happy Independence Day Everyone!
