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

- Melville, Herman
My country wrong or right, is like saying my mother, drunk or sober.

- Chesterton, Gilbert K.
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.

- George, David Lloyd
God and Country are an unbeatable team; they break all records for oppression and bloodshed.

- Bunuel, Luis
Many a bum show has been saved by the flag.

- Cohan, George M.
Patriotism is not a short and frenzied outburst of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.

- Adlai E. Stevenson, Jr
When a whole nation is roaring Patriotism at the top of its voice, I am fain to explore the cleanness of its hands and purity of its heart.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
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
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
Everyone loathes his own country and countrymen if he is any sort of artist.

- Durrell, Lawrence
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
Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all other countries because you were born in it.

- George Bernard Shaw
The flag is the embodiment, not of sentiment, but of history.

- Woodrow Wilson
Our obligations to our country never cease but with our lives.

- John Adams
You're not to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it.

- Malcolm X
Patriotism is easy to understand in America; it means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.

- Coolidge, Calvin
Patriotism, when it wants to make itself felt in the domain of learning, is a dirty fellow who should be thrown out of doors.

- Schopenhauer, Arthur
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
