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

A man's feet must be planted in his country, but his eyes should survey the world.
George Santayana

Edward Abbey

America is much more than a geographical fact. It is a political and moral fact - the first community in which men set out in principle to institutionalize freedom, responsible government, and human equality.
Adlai Stevenson

Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.
John F. Kennedy

Breathes there the man with soul so dead
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne'er within him burn'd
As home his footsteps he hath turn'd
From wandering on a foreign strand?
Walter Scott

Democracy is the government of the people, by the people, for the people.
Abraham Lincoln

Do not regard the critics as questionable patriots. What were Washington and Jefferson and Adams but profound critics of the colonial status quo?
Adlai Ewing Stevenson

Each must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, and which course is patriotic and which isn't. You cannot shirk this and be a man.

Mark Twain

Equal rights for all, special privileges for none.
Thomas Jefferson

For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail?

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.
Dwight D. Eisenhower

Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better.
Albert Camus

Freedom is the oxygen of the soul.
Moshe Dayan

He loves his country best who strives to make it best.
Robert Green Ingersoll

He who loves not his country, can love nothing.
Lord Byron

Heroism on command, senseless violence, and the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism - how passionately I hate them!
Albert Einstein

I am not an Athenian or a Greek, I am a citizen of the world.
Socrates

I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.
Abraham Lincoln

If our country is worth dying for in time of war let us resolve that it is truly worth living for in time of peace.
Hamilton Fish

In a chariot of light from the region of the day,
The Goddess of Liberty came
She brought in her hand as a pledge of her love,
the plant she named Liberty Tree.
Thomas Paine July
1775

In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms The first is freedom of speech and expression--everywhere in the world. The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way--everywhere in the world. The third is freedom from want--which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants--everywhere in the world. The fourth is freedom from fear--which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor--anywhere in the world.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you.
Dick Cheney

It is the love of country that has lighted and that keeps glowing the holy fire of patriotism.
J. Horace McFarland

Liberty is the breath of life to nations.
George Bernard Shaw

Loyalty to the country always. Loyalty to the government when it deserves it.
Mark Twain

May the sun in his course visit no land more free, more happy, more lovely, than this our own country!
Daniel Webster

Men love their country, not because it is great, but because it is their own.
Seneca

My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!
Thomas Jefferson

Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind.
Albert Einstein

Our country is not the only thing to which we owe our allegiance. It is also owed to justice and to humanity. Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.
James Bryce

Our hearts where they rocked our cradle,
Our love where we spent our toil,
And our faith, and our hope, and our honor,
We pledge to our native soil.
God gave all men all earth to love,
But since our hearts are small,
Ordained for each one spot should prove
Beloved over all.
Rudyard Kipling

Patriotism is a kind of religion; it is the egg from which wars are hatched.
Guy de Maupassant

Patriotism is easy to understand in America; it means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.
Calvin Coolidge

Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.
Samuel Johnson

Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious.
Oscar Wilde

Patriotism is the willingness to kill and be killed for trivial reasons.
Bertrand Russell

Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all other countries because you were born in it.
George Bernard Shaw

Some reformers may urge that in the ages distant future, patriotism, like the habit of monogamous marriage, will become a needless and obsolete virtue; but just at present the man who loves other countries as much as he does his own is quite as noxious a member of society as the man who loves other women as much as he loves his wife. Love of country is an elemental virtue, like love of home.
Theodore Roosevelt

Sweet and glorious it is to die for our country.
Horace

The love of one's country is a splendid thing. But why should love stop at the border?
Pablo Casals

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.
Thomas Jefferson

The winds that blow through the wide sky in these mounts, the winds that sweep from Canada to Mexico, from the Pacific to the Atlantic - have always blown on free men.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all!
By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall.
John Dickinson

There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America.
Bill Clinton

These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.
Thomas Paine

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

Those who won our independence believed liberty to be the secret of happiness and courage to be the secret of liberty.
Louis D. Brandeis

To me, it seems a dreadful indignity to have a soul controlled by geography.
George Santayana

We fight in honorable fashion for the good of mankind; fearless of the future, unheeding of our individual fates, with unflinching hearts and undimmed eyes; we stand at Armageddon, and we battle for the Lord.
Theodore Roosevelt

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
The Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776

We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.
William Faulkner

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
Martin Luther King Jr.

What pity is it That we can die, but once to serve our country.
Joseph Addison

When you see a rattlesnake poised to strike, you do not wait until he has struck to crush him.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Where liberty dwells, there is my country.
Benjamin Franklin

Who is here so vile that will not love his country?
William Shakespeare

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.
Erma Bombeck

You'll never have a quiet world till you knock the patriotism out of the human race.
George Bernard Shaw

You're not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who says it.
Malcolm X
