Thoughts for Thursday: Patriotism

Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

So I'm a week late on the theme again. I tend to do that with holiday themes. I should have done this last week, but oh well! This week's theme is quotes about

"Loyalty to country ALWAYS. Loyalty to government, when it deserves it."--Mark Twain

"If we ever forget we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.--Ronald Reagan

"Occasionally, the tree of Liberty must be watered with the blood of Patriots and Tyrants."--Thomas Jefferson

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."--Abraham Lincoln

“My old man says when it's time to be counted, the important thing is to be man enough to stand up.”--Robert Heinlein, Between Planets
"Patriotism must be founded on great principles and supported by great virtue."--Henry Bolingbroke

What's your favorite quote about patriotism? Do you have one to add?
