Freedom Toasts

May we always remember the words of Epictetus, who said, "Only the educated are free."

My country, great and free!
Heart of the world, I drink to thee!

May we be slaves to no party and bigots to no sect.

To the American eagle-may it never rise in anger, never go to roost in fear.

To freedom from mobs as well as kings.

Love, life, and liberty:
Love pure,
Life long,
Liberty boundless.
