Quotes About Patriotism



A collection of quotes about patriotism

For us, patriotism is the same as the love of humanity.
- Quote by Mohandas Gandhi

Patriotism is proud of a country's virtues and eager to correct its deficiencies; it also acknowledges the legitimate patriotism of other countries, with their own specific virtues. The pride of nationalism, however, trumpets its country's virtues and denies its deficiencies, while it is contemptuous toward the virtues of other countries. It wants to be, and proclaims itself to be, "the greatest," but greatness is not required of a country; only goodness is.
- Quote by Sydney J. Harris

He was a great patriot, a humanitarian, a loyal friend - provided, of course, that he really is dead.
- Quotes by Voltaire

This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.
- Quotes by Abraham Lincoln

Patriotism is voluntary. It is a feeling of loyalty and allegiance that is the result of knowledge and belief. A patriot shows their their patriotism through their actions, by their choice.
- Quote by Jesse Ventura

I was only the servant of my country and had I, at any moment, failed to express her unflinching resolve to fight and conquer, I should at once have been rightly cast aside.
- Quote by Winston Churchill

Our purpose now is to reclaim democracy itself. We are here to affirm that when Americans stand up and speak their minds and say America can do better, that is not a challenge to patriotism; it is the heart and soul of patriotism.
- Quote by Senator John Kerry

Patriotism must be founded on great principals and supported by great virtue.
- Quote by Henry Bolingbroke

It is the love of country that has lighted and that keeps glowing the holy fire of patriotism.
- Quote by J. Horace McFarland

We're being sold a brand-new idea of patriotism. It never occurred to me that patriotism had to be advertised. Patriotism is something you deeply felt. You didn't have to wear it on your lapel or show it in your window or on a bumper sticker. That kind of patriotism doesn't appeal to me at all.
- Quote by Sam Shepard

I don't want the word patriotism being brought up over here because of these guys being professional and (some) other teams are not. Because when you have $100 million in the bank and a contract and you leave everything and take a chance and come over here and play for your country, if that isn't patriotism, I don't know what it is.
- Quote by Manny Acta

Breathes there the man with soul so dead, Who never to himself hath said, This is my own, my native land!
- Quote by Sir Walter Scott

Drew Carey was the person who got me involved in this... he's so patriotic.
- Quote by Kathy Kinney

Where liberty dwells, there is my country.” - Quote by Benjamin Franklin

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” - Quotes by Abraham Lincoln

It is the quality of patriotism to be jealous and watchful, to observe all secret machinations, and to see publick dangers at a distance. The true lover of his country is ready to communicate his fears, and to sound the alarm, whenever he perceives the approach of mischief. But he sounds no alarm, when there is no enemy; he never terrifies his countrymen till he is terrified himself. The patriotism, therefore, may be justly doubted of him, who professes to be disturbed by incredibilities..."
- Quotes by Samuel Johnson

We'll try to cooperate fully with the IRS, because, as citizens, we feel a strong patriotic duty not to go to jail.” - Quote by Dave Barry

Each man must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, which course is patriotic and which isn't. You cannot shirk this and be a man. To decide against your conviction is to be an unqualified and excusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let men label you as they may.
- Quote by Mark Twain

Each man must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, which course is patriotic and which isn't. You cannot shirk this and be a man.
- Quote by Thomas Tusser

But in a larger sense we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract.
- Quotes by Abraham Lincoln

Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.
- Quotes by Samuel Johnson

Patriotism is easy to understand in America... it means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.
- Quote by Calvin Coolidge

I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.
- Quote by Hillary Clinton

I do think the patriotic thing to do is to critique my country. How else do you make a country better but by pointing out its flaws?
