The Patriotic Quote -- Our Top 10 List of Favorite Patriotism Quotes...

Ah, patriotic quotes: they perfectly express your love of your home and country. But there's far more to them than that. Patriotism doesn't mean blind love, after all, but loving a country -- warts and all.

Remember, a patriotic quote can just as often be a call to moral awareness as an expression of love. Just consider Malcolm X's famous statement: "You're not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who says it."

On the other hand, you can find many a famous patriotic quote that will inspire you to love and serve your country, too -- it's not all cynicism and worry. As John Gunther points out, "ours is the only country deliberately founded on a good idea."

So hold your head high and shout your love of your country from the rooftops. You don't even have to worry about finding the right words -- just browse through these patriotic quotes until you find the exact sentiments that touch your heart.
