Patriotism quotes
Patriotism
Let America first praise mediocrity even, in her children, before she praises... the best excellence in the children of any other land.

- Melville, Herman
Many a bum show has been saved by the flag.

- Cohan, George M.
It is the patriotic duty of every man to lie for his country.

- Adler, Alfred
Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.

- Hermann G÷ring
You can question somebody's views and their judgment without questioning their motives or patriotism.

- President Barack Obama
Speculations and loans in foreign fields are likely to bring us into war... The war-for-profit group has counterfeited patriotism.

- Charles Lindberg Sr.
What pity is it That we can die, but once to serve our country.

- Addison, Joseph
My country, always wrong.

- Student Slogan
How much longer are we going to think it necessary to be American before (or in contradistinction to) being cultivated, being enlightened, being humane, and having the same intellectual discipline as other civilized countries?

- Wharton, Edith
In the United States, doing good has come to be, like patriotism, a favorite device of persons with something to sell.

- H. L. Mencken
The people can always be brought to the bidding of their leaders. All you have to do is tell them that they are in danger of being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.

- Hermann Goering
FOOL, n. A person who pervades the domain of intellectual speculation and diffuses himself through the channels of moral activity. He is omnific, omniform, omnipercipient, omniscience, omnipotent. He it was who invented letters, printing, the railroad, the steamboat, the telegraph, the platitude and the circle of the sciences. He created patriotism and taught the nations war -- founded theology, philosophy, law, medicine and Chicago. He established monarchical and republican government. He is from everlasting to everlasting -- such as creation's dawn beheld he fooleth now. In the morning of time he sang upon primitive hills, and in the noonday of existence headed the procession of being. His grandmotherly hand was warmly tucked-in the set sun of civilization, and in the twilight he prepares Man's evening meal of milk-and-morality and turns down the covers of the universal grave. And after the rest of us shall have retired for the night of eternal oblivion he will sit up to write a history of human civilization.

- Ambrose Bierce
Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious.

- Oscar Wilde
Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president.

- Theodore Roosevelt
When I am abroad, I always make it a rule never to criticize or attack the government of my own country. I make up for lost time when I come home.

- Sir Winston Churchill
It is a sweet and seemly thing to die for one's country.

- Horace
Yippies, Hippies, Yahoos, Black Panthers, lions and tigers alike -- I would swap the whole damn zoo for the kind of young Americans I saw in Vietnam.

- Agnew, Spiro T.
A man who is good enough to shed his blood for his country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards. More than that no man is entitled to, and less than that no man shall have.

- Roosevelt, Theodore
Nationalism is our form of incest, is our idolatry, is our insanity. Patriotism is its cult. It should hardly be necessary to say, that by patriotism I mean that attitude which puts the own nation above humanity, above the principles of truth and justice; not the loving interest in one's own nation, which is the concern with the nation's spiritual as much as with its material welfare --never with its power over other nations. Just as love for one individual which excludes the love for others is not love, love for one's country which is not part of one's love for humanity is not love, but idolatrous worship.

- Fromm, Erich
PATRIOTISM, n. Combustible rubbish ready to the torch of any one ambitious to illuminate his name. In Dr. Johnson's famous dictionary patriotism is defined as the last resort of a scoundrel. With all due respect to an enlightened but inferior lexicographer I beg to submit that it is the first.

- Ambrose Bierce
