Thoughts on America

Just feeling a bit patriotic this morning. Here are some quotes for your reading pleasure:

"You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else." -- Winston Churchill

"The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission."
-- John F. Kennedy

"What the United States does best is to understand itself. What it does worst is understand others." -- Carlos Fuentes

"America's abundance was not created by public sacrifices to "the common good", but by the productive genius of free men who pursued their own personal interests and the making of their own private fortunes" -- Ayn Rand

"America makes prodigious mistakes, America has colossal faults, but one thing cannot be denied: America is always on the move. She may be going to Hell, of course, but at least she isn't standing still." -- E. E. Cummings

"America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination, and unbeatable determination to do the job at hand." -- Harry S. Truman

"There is nothing wrong with America that the faith, love of freedom, intelligence, and energy of her citizens can not cure." -- Dwight David Eisenhower

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"America lives in the heart of every man everywhere who wishes to find a region where he will be free to work out his destiny as he chooses" -- Woodrow Wilson

"We can have no "50-50" allegiance in this country. Either a man is an American and nothing else, or he is not an American at all." -- Theodore Roosevelt

"The cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind"
-- Thomas Paine

"The cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind"
-- Jimmy Carter
