Friday Filosophy #2016-21

This weekend is a special one: Memorial Day. This is the day to remember all of the men and women who have died in the service of our country. They gave everything to allow us to enjoy our freedom. I am an immigrant to this country. I am thankful to be a citizen of this country.  For this Friday Filosophy #2016-21, I want to focus on this idea of country.


May Heaven be propitious, and smile on the cause of my country.

Zebulon Pike

On what rests the hope of the republic? One country, one language, one flag.

Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.

Mark Twain


In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that’s real power.

I am not concerned with your liking or disliking me…all I ask is that you respect me as a human being.

The time is now.
