My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
Patriotism is easy to understand in America. It means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.
There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured with what is right in America.
I was born an American; I will live an American; I shall die an American.
Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!
My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!
Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all! By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall.
Loyalty to the country always. Loyalty to the government when it deserves it.
We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.
America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.
A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.
We shall pay any price, bear any burden, to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
Our country ... when right, to be kept right. When wrong, to be put right.
Ev'ry heart beats true 'neath the Red, White and Blue
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail?
These are the times that try men's souls.
This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.
