Patriotism quotes
Patriotism
1.

Intellectually I know that America is no better than any other country; emotionally I know she is better than every other country.

- Lewis, Sinclair
2.

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

- Addison, Joseph
3.

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

- George Bernard Shaw
4.

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.

- Curtis, George William
5.

I know [patriotism] exists, and I know it has done much in the present contest. But a great and lasting war can never be supported on this principle alone. It must be aided by a prospect of interest, or some reward.

- George Washington
6.

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

- Albert Einstein
7.

Don't be a fool and die for your country. Let the other sonofabitch die for his.

- George S. Patton
8.

Patriotism having become one of our topicks, Johnson suddenly uttered, in a strong determined tone, an apophthegm, at which many will start: "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel." But let it be considered that he did not mean a real and generous love of our country, but that pretended patriotism which so many, in all ages and countries, have made a cloak of self- interest.

- Samuel Johnson
9.

Our young people have come to look upon war as a kind of beneficent deity, which not only adds to the national honor but uplifts a nation and develops patriotism and courage. That is all true. But it is only fair, too, to let them know that the garments of the deity are filthy and that some of her influences debase and befoul a people.

- Davis, Rebecca Harding
10.

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

- Bertrand Russell
11.

Patriotism has its roots deep in the instincts and the affections. Love of country is the expansion of dutiful love.

- Field, D. D.
12.

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

- Charles Lindberg Sr.
13.

The love of their country is with them only a mode of flattering its master; as soon as they think that master can no longer hear, they speak of everything with a frankness which is the more startling because those who listen to it become responsible.

- Custine, Marquis De
14.

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
15.

And so, my fellow americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.

- John F. Kennedy
16.

How beautiful is death, when earn'd by virtue! Who would not be that youth? What pity is it That we can die but once to serve our country!

- Joseph Addison
17.

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
18.

Our heroes are those... who... act above and beyond the call of duty and in so doing give definition to patriotism and elevate all of us.... America is the land of the free because we are the home of the brave.

- David Mahoney
19.

Breathes there the man with soul so dead, Who never to himself hath said, This is my own, my native land!

- Scott, Sir Walter
20.

Patriotism is not a short and frenzied outburst of emotion but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.

- Stevenson, Adlai E.
