Patriotism: Quotations from Around the World
"Liberty and union, now and forever, one and inseparable." — Daniel Webster.
"How dear to all good hearts is their fatherland." — Voltaire.
"Men love their country, not because it is great, but because it is their own." — Seneca.
More than 400 other memorable quotations — mostly related to the love and earnest support of one's country — fill the pages of this little book. Expressed over the ages by poets, novelists, playwrights, statesmen, military leaders, philosophers, and other figures of note, these sometimes witty, sometimes cynical, and often provocative sayings have been alphabetically arranged by the author.
A handy volume for students, teachers, speechwriters, and public speakers, this thought-provoking collection will appeal to a wide audience.
