"Patriotism is love of country. But you can't love your country without loving your countrymen and countrywomen. We don't always have to agree, but we must empower each other, we must find the common ground, we must build bridges across our differences to pursue the common good."
"Patriotism is as much a virtue as justice, and is as necessary for the support of societies as natural affection is for the support of families."
"Equal laws protecting equal rights—the best guarantee of loyalty and love of country.”
