On Patriotism

No man can be a patriot on an empty stomach.

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

You will never have a quiet world till you knock the patriotism out of the human race.
-George Bernard Shaw

Patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrel.
-Samuel Johnson

Patriotism is not enough. We must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone.

To make us love our country, our country ought to be lovely.
-Edmund Brake.
