My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.
Freedom cannot be bestowed - it must be achieved.
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.
America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.
I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.
In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.
If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.
Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.
True patriotism hates injustice in its own land more than anywhere else.
Democracy means simply the bludgeoning of the people by the people for the people.
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.
Of the people, by the people, for the people.
I think patriotism is like charity -- it begins at home.
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.
In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.
This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.
Freedom is the oxygen of the soul.
We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men and women are created equal.
A man's feet should be planted in his country, but his eyes should survey the world.
