Step 1: Come up with the right quote

The key to a memorable 4th of July video starts with the perfect words – a quote that captures the spirit of freedom, unity, or the rich history of the United States. But who has time to sift through countless historical texts? That's where the magic of AI comes to the rescue. With a little help from our ChatGPT-powered widget, you can come up with the ideal quote from great people in US history in just a few clicks. What's more, you can easily adjust your message by selecting the type of historical figure you want to quote (think Founding Fathers, presidents, army generals, poets, and other authors) and the theme you want the quote to emphasize (patriotism, national pride, freedom, independence, diversity, service and sacrifice, etc.).

Generate 5 inspiring quotes related to celebrating the 4th of July. Each quote should be between 10 and 15 words, focused on freedom from Founding Fathers, and include the name of the person behind the quote.

We entered "freedom" into the topic field and "Founding Fathers" into the historical figure field, and here's what we got:

Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.
George Washington

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
- Thomas Jefferson

Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature.
- Benjamin Franklin

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.
- Abraham Lincoln

Give me liberty, or give me death!
- Patrick Henry

From the selection, Patrick Henry’s memorable quote, “Give me liberty or give me death!” seems to be the best fitting for the video card we’re making.
Now that you have your quote, it’s time to come up with the face behind it.
