Quotes: Misplaced Nationalism
I once ventured to say to an old clergyman who was voicing this sort of patriotism, "But sir, aren't we told that every people thinks its own men the bravest and it's own women the fairest in the world?" He replied with total gravity-he could not have been graver if he had been reciting the Creed at the altar-"Yes, but in England it's true."

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