If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.
Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind.
John F. Kennedy
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
Patriot: the person who can holler the loudest without knowing what he is hollering about.
John F. Kennedy
I look forward to a great future for America - a future in which our country will match its military strength with our moral restraint, its wealth with our wisdom, its power with our purpose.
Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious.
You're not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who says it.
George Bernard Shaw
Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all others because you were born in it.
It is lamentable, that to be a good patriot one must become the enemy of the rest of mankind.
We, the People, recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights that our destinies are bound together that a freedom which only asks what's in it for me, a freedom without a commitment to others, a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism, is unworthy of our founding ideals, and those who died in their defense.
True patriotism hates injustice in its own land more than anywhere else.
One of the great attractions of patriotism - it fulfills our worst wishes. In the person of our nation we are able, vicariously, to bully and cheat. Bully and cheat, what's more, with a feeling that we are profoundly virtuous.
Each nation feels superior to other nations. That breeds patriotism - and wars.
Can anything be stupider than that a man has the right to kill me because he lives on the other side of a river and his ruler has a quarrel with mine, though I have not quarrelled with him?
The highest patriotism is not a blind acceptance of official policy, but a love of one's country deep enough to call her to a higher plain.
Patriotism is easy to understand in America. It means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.
Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear - kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor - with the cry of grave national emergency.
Patriotism is the willingness to kill and be killed for trivial reasons.
Patriotism is usually stronger than class hatred, and always stronger than internationalism.
Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.
