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

- Bertrand Russell
I've seen a lot of patriots and they all died just like anybody else if it hurt bad enough and once they were dead their patriotism was only good for legends; it was bad for their prose and made them write bad poetry. If you are going to be a great patriot i.e. loyal to any existing order of government (not one who wishes to destroy the existing for something better) you want to be killed early if your life and works won't stink.

- Hemingway, Ernest

Our Country is our home, the home which God has given us, placing therein a numerous family which we love and are loved by, and with which we have a more intimate and quicker communion of feeling and thought than with others; a family which by its concentration upon a given spot, and by the homogeneous nature of its elements, is destined for a special kind of activity.

- Mazzini, Giuseppe
God and Country are an unbeatable team; they break all records for oppression and bloodshed.
