Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
Always desire to learn something useful.
Expect problems and eat them for breakfast.
Never complain and never explain.
Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
To be a good loser is to learn how to win.
Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.
What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.
I can, therefore I am.
My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.
Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.
I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.
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.
Memorial Day this year is especially important as we are reminded almost daily of the great sacrifices that the men and women of the Armed Services make to defend our way of life.
I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.
As America celebrates Memorial Day, we pay tribute to those who have given their lives in our nation's wars.
There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured with what is right in America.
Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.
