Patriotism Quotes & Sayings
Service To Others
America And Americans
If patriotism is "the last refuge of a scoundrel," it is not merely because evil deeds may be performed in the name of patriotism, but because patriotic fervor can obliterate moral distinctions altogether
Ralph B Perry
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 just loyalty to friends, people, families.
Family Loyalty 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
Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism -how passionately I hate them!
He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.
Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
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.
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.
The American spirit wears no political label. In service to others and yes, in sacrifice for our country, there are no Republicans; there are no Democrats; there are only Americans.
Senator John Kerry

Service To Others quotes
America must raise an empire of permanent duration, supported upon the grand pillars of Truth, Freedom, and Religion, encouraged by the smiles of Justice and defended by her own patriotic sons.
Gentlemen have talked a great deal of patriotism. A venerable word, when duly practised.
But my patriotism goes for something beyond what we have. We don't have something that I want to die for - anymore.
Patriotism must be founded on great principals and supported by great virtue.
There's intense national feeling in America that could be called patriotism.
Patriotism. Combustible rubbish ready to the torch of any one ambitious to illuminate his name.
Patriotism is when love of your own people comes first; nationalism, when hate for people other than your own comes first.
Charles De Gaulle
The sight of nature fascinates, the family tie has a sweet enchantment and patriotism gives the religious spirit a fiery devotion to the powers that it reveres.
There are those who wrap themselves in flags and blow the tinny trumpet of patriotism as a means of fooling the people.
Patriotism is the religion of hell.
James Branch Cabell
