The U.S. was founded on the ideas of freedom, individualism and liberty, welcoming those from over the world. It also always been a country characterized by a strong sense of vision, daring and innovation. From great inventors such as Thomas Edison and Benjamin Franklin to Henry Ford, to visionaries like Alexander Graham Bell, Bill Gates, and Steve Jobs, to those who inspired others with their words and writings – from Thomas Jefferson, to Mark Twain to the leaders of today. The United States has always been filled with big dreams, and a persistence and strength to always envision and capture what the future can bring.

With that in mind, here 7 great quotes that inspire us to continue looking forward.

It is far better to be exhausted from success than to be rested from failure.” – Mary Kay Ash
