Our heart's where they rocked our cradle, Our love where we spent our toil, And our faith, and our hope, and our honour We pledge to our native soil!
Nationalism, and its chum, Patriotism, encourage unedifying hyperbole.Douglas Eaglesham Dunn
True Patriotism isn't cheap. It's about taking on a fair share of the burden of keeping America going.Robert Reich
Patriotism is an ephemeral motive that scarcely ever outlasts the particular threat to society that aroused it.
Standing, as I do, in view of God and eternity, I realize that Patriotism is not enough. I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone.edith cavell
I would like to salute [Ceau?escu's] intransigent Patriotism and ferocious will for independence. A veritable amity links me to him.nicolae ceauşescu
What is Patriotism but love of the good things we ate in our childhood? I have said elsewhere that the loyalty to Uncle Sam is the loyalty to doughnuts and ham and sweet potatoes and the loyalty to the German Vaterland is the loyalty to Pfannkuchen and Christmas Stollen. As for international understanding, I feel that macaroni has done more for our appreciation of Italy than Mussolini... in food, as in death, we feel the essential brotherhood of mankind.lin yutang
The difference between Patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does; the first attitude creates a feeling of responsibility, but the second a feeling of blind arrogance that leads to war.
No matter that Patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent , rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.barbara ehrenreich
You'll never have a quiet world till you knock the Patriotism out of the human race.
Patriotism is proud of a country’s virtues and eager to correct its deficiencies; it also acknowledges the legitimate Patriotism of other countries, with their own specific virtues. The pride of nationalism, however, trumpets its country’s virtues and denies its deficiencies, while it is contemptuous toward the virtues of other countries. It wants to be, and proclaims itself to be, “the greatest,” but greatness is not required of a country; only goodness is.sydney j. harris
The stern hand of fate has scourged us to an elevation where we can see the great everlasting things which matter for a nation the great peaks we had forgotten, of Honor, Duty, Patriotism, and clad in glittering white, the great pinnacle of Sacrifice pointing like a rugged finger to Heaven.david lloyd george
True Patriotism, it seems to me, is based on tolerance and a large measure of humility.adlai stevenson
He too, liked his party, and was fond of loyal men; but he had learned at last that all loyalty must be built on a basis of self-advantage. Patriotism may exist without it, but that which Erie called loyalty in politics was simply devotion to the side which a man conceives to be his side, and which he cannot leave without danger to himself.Anthony Trollope
Patriotism is, fundamentally, a conviction that a particular country is the best in the world because you were born in it.
Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.
What is the use of fighting for the vote if we do not have a country to vote in? With that Patriotism that has nerved women to endure torture in prison for the national good, we ardently desire that our country shall be victorious.Emmeline ne e Goulden Pankhurst
To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family tradition, national Patriotism, and religious dogmas.brock chisholm
"In my opinion, Patriotism is liberty."josé luis rodríguez zapatero
I confidently trust that the American people will prove themselves … too wise not to detect the false pride or the dangerous ambitions or the selfish schemes which so often hide themselves under that deceptive cry of mock Patriotism: "Our country, right or wrong!" They will not fail to recognize that our dignity, our free institutions and the peace and welfare of this and coming generations of Americans will be secure only as we cling to the watchword of true Patriotism: "Our country — when right to be kept right; when wrong to be put right."carl schurz
The world is a fine place. The only thing wrong with it is us. How little justice and humility there is in us, how poorly we understand Patriotism!Anton Chekhov
I appeal to you, therefore, that a man like this stands not only before the bar of this court, but stands before the bar of the high court of History… Long after this controversy is hushed in silence, long after this turmoil and this agitation ceases, long after he is dead and gone, he will be looked upon as the poet of Patriotism, as the prophet of nationalism and the lover of humanity. Long after he is dead and gone his words will be echoed and re-echoed not only in India but across distant seas and lands.chittaranjan das
About Swami Vivekanada: I am not saying that the message of the Swami was the final word in our nationalism… But it was tremendous – something with an undying glory of its own. If you read his books, if you read his lectures, you are struck at once with his love of humanity, his Patriotism, not abstract Patriotism which came to us from Europe but of different nature altogether a more living thing, something which we feel within ourselves when we read his writings.chittaranjan das
You'll never have a quiet world till you knock the Patriotism out of the human race.George Bernard Shaw
Healthy Patriotism is associated with robust particularism – petty provincialism, if you like – and certainly not with the deracinated globalism exhibited by our GI Joes and Janes.
There are no points of the compass on the chart of true Patriotism.
True Patriotism sometimes requires of men to act exactly contrary, at one period, to that which it does at another, and the motive which impels them the desire to do right is precisely the same.
