Patriotic Quotes


Whether they are wrapped in a nation’s flag or in the fervor of public opinion, patriotic quotes can stir emotions like nothing else. Whether it’s “Remember the Alamo,” or “Fifty-Four Forty or Fight,” patriotic quotes, rousing speeches, uplifting songs and popular sayings are rallying points that show our love of country and our willingness to protect our interests at home and abroad against all enemies, foreign or domestic. As anyone knows, it’s easy be your chest to a patriotic tome, but the test of a true patriot is when you see the whites of their eyes and you must choose between fight or flight.
