In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
May Heaven be propitious, and smile on the cause of my country.
Man is a military animal, glories in gunpowder, and loves parade.
My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.
Who sows virtue reaps honor.
I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.
There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured with what is right in America.
Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.
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.
True patriotism isn’t cheap. It’s about taking on a fair share of the burden of keeping America going.
What I can do for my country, I am willing to do.
The willingness of America’s veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.
As America celebrates Memorial Day, we pay tribute to those who have given their lives in our nation’s wars.
Memorial Day this year is especially important as we are reminded almost daily of the great sacrifices that the men and women of the Armed Services make to defend our way of life.
I have long believed that sacrifice is the pinnacle of patriotism.
On Memorial Day, I don’t want to only remember the combatants. There were also those who came out of the trenches as writers and poets, who started preaching peace, men and women who have made this world a kinder place to live.
I would rather be remembered by a song than by a victory.
The average American is nothing if not patriotic.
Over all our happy country – over all our Nation spread, Is a band of noble heroes – is our Army of the Dead.
