We, the People, recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights; that our destinies are bound together; that a freedom which only asks what's in it for me, a freedom without a commitment to others, a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism, is unworthy of our founding ideals, and those who died in their defense.  -President Barack Obama

 

Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men.  It is the spirit of men who follow and of the man who leads that gains the victory.  -General George S. Patton

 

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardshiip, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.  -President John F. Kennedy

 

Patriotism... is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.   -Adlai Stevenson

 

I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives.  I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.  -Abraham Lincoln
