Quotes about Patriotism




"To be a good patriot one must become the enemy of the rest of mankind."
Voltaire

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

"Nationalism is an infantile disease, the measles of mankind"
Albert Einstein

"I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world."
Socrates

"Men in authority will always think that criticism of their policies is dangerous. They will always equate their policies with patriotism, and find criticism subversive."
Henry Steele

"There is nothing more American than raising your voice in protest, and there is nothing more un-American than a government that attempts to hit the mute button when it doesn't like what it hears."
Witold Walczak, Legal Director of the ACLU Pittsburgh

"To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men."
Abraham Lincoln



"Those who misrepresent the normal experiences of life, who decry being controversial, who shun risk, are the enemies of the American way of life, whatever the piety of their vocal professions and the patriotic flavor of their platitudes."
Henry M. Wriston

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

"Sometimes I wonder if I'm patriotic enough. Yes, I want to kill people, but on both sides."
Jack Handey



"He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder."
Albert Einstein



"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."
Herman Goering
