Patriotism Quotes & Sayings
Service To Others
America And Americans
I know [patriotism] exists, and I know it has done much in the present contest. But a great and lasting war can never be supported on this principle alone. It must be aided by a prospect of interest, or some reward.
[America is] a rebellious nation. Our whole history is treason; our blood was attained before we were born; our creeds were infidelity to the mother church; our constitution treason to our fatherland.
America And Americans quotes
The Bible tells me that no greater love has a man than to lay down his life for his friends. John Kerry's fellow crewmates -- the men I am honored to share the stage with -- are living testimony to his leadership, his courage under fire, and his willingness to risk his life for his fellow Americans. There is no greater act of patriotism than that.
John Kerry quotes
The Bible quotes
A patriot is he whose public conduct is regulated by one single motive, the love of his country; who, as an agent in parliament, has, for himself, neither hope nor fear, neither kindness nor resentment, but refers every thing to the common interest
Of the many unforeseen consequences of typography, the emergence of nationalism is, perhaps, the most familiar
Born in iniquity and conceived in sin, the spirit of nationalism has never ceased to bend human institutions to the service of dissension and distress
When a dog barks at the moon, then it is religion; but when he barks at strangers, it is patriotism!
David Starr Jordan
One of the great attractions of patriotism it fulfills our worst wishes. In the person of our nation we are able, vicariously, to bully and cheat. Bully and cheat, what's more, with a feeling that we are profoundly virtuous.
Patriotism is an ephemeral motive that scarcely ever outlasts the particular threat to society that aroused it.
A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle; and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.
George William Curtis
Patriotism is often an arbitrary veneration of real estate above principles.
George Jean Nathan
Patriotism is a kind of religion; it is the egg from which wars are hatched.
Guy De Maupassant
Every good citizen makes his country's honor his own, and cherishes it not only as precious but as sacred. He is willing to risk his life in its defence and is conscious that he gains protection while he gives it.
Patriotism varies, from a noble devotion to a moral lunacy
W R Inge
I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country.
Patriotism means unqualified and unwavering love for the nation, which implies not uncritical eagerness to serve, not support for unjust claims, but frank assessment of its vices and sins, and penitence for them
Patriotism is when love of your own people comes first; nationalism, when hate for people other than your own comes first.
Charles De Gaulle
My affections were first for my own country, then, generally, for all mankind
Patriotism is as fierce as a fever, pitiless as the grave, blind as a stone, and irrational as a headless hen
I would lay down my life to defend any one of the States from aggression, which endangered peace or threatened its institutions. I could do more for the union, but I wish to do more; for the destruction of the union would be the destruction of all the States. A stab in the heart is worse then a cut in a limb, for this may be healed.
