"PATRIOTISM"



The greater the state, the more wrong and cruel its patriotism, and the greater is the sum of suffering upon which its power is founded.
Leo Tolstoy




Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all others because you were born in it.
George Bernard Shaw   




Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.
Mark Twain 


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



It is not easy to see how the more extreme forms of nationalism can long survive when men have seen the Earth in its true perspective as a single small globe against the stars.

Patriotism is a kind of religion; it is the egg from which wars are hatched.
Guy de Maupassant   




 Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.
Adlai E. Stevenson 



            Patriotism is often an arbitrary veneration of real estate above principles.
