I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.
~George William Curtis
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.
Patriotism is easy to understand in America - it means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.
~Henry Ward Beecher
A thoughtful mind, when it sees a Nation's flag, sees not the flag only, but the Nation itself; and whatever may be its symbols, its insignia, he reads chiefly in the flag the Government, the principles, the truths, the history which belongs to the Nation that sets it forth.
