Quotes about devotion to patriotism

I Am Not Proud Of My Country

I love my Homeland Country and of it's scenic sights I sing
But I don't say I am proud to be Irish as proud has a patriotic ring
And those who feel proud of their Country often go that step too far
As pride leads to patriotism and patriotism leads to war.

I have never waved my Country's flag at parade or football game
And I am not Proud of my country though I love it just the same
For pride and love are different as different as can be
And pride that leads to patriotism has never appealed to me.

Some people on flag post in their front yard fly their Country's flag
And I am proud of my Country you hear them proudly brag
But others worthiness and cultures they never could embrace
And without saying so they are telling you that ours is a superior race.

I am proud of my Country you will never hear me say
Though many feel that pride and patriotism are good and quite okay
But how many young men have died in wars due to patriotic pride
Love brings people together whilst pride and patriotism divide.

Devotion

Words and music amy ray
I pulled out with the mountain laurel blooming
On a dirt road that is soon to be paved
Down to the site of my original establishment
And the west end family grave
Cause one day moves into two
(one day moves into two)
And Im losing
Everything except for you
(everything except for you)
And I would sing you a song of devotion
(I would sing you a song of devotion)
Yeah thats what I should do
(thats what I should do)
Blood runs thick and when it rains it pours down
(blood runs thick)
On the family tree on the fields of war
(the family tree on the fields of war)
I spend my time being broken hearted and grieving bound
(I spend my time being broken hearted and grieving bound)

Adlai Stevenson

We talk a great deal about patriotism. What do we mean by patriotism in the context of our times? I venture to suggest that what we mean is a sense of national responsibility which will enable America to remain master of her power — to walk with it in serenity and wisdom, with self-respect and the respect of all mankind; a patriotism that puts country ahead of self; a patriotism which is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime. The dedication of a lifetime — these are words that are easy to utter, but this is a mighty assignment. For it is often easier to fight for principles than to live up to them.

What Is True Devotion?

What is true devotion?

He is a farmer-

His means may not be much;

Not highly literate

To know by heart

The hymns and compositions

Of great seers and sages

Or of religious poets

To roll out in animated devotion

Devotion

If I am right
If I can be
Constant and faithful
Youll find me
In my devotion
In my devotion
What if you find a fault
Between my purpose and my deeds
And deem me beyond salvation
Judge me to be unworthy
Of your devotion
Of your devotion
If this be obsession deliver me
A passing infatuation deliver me
A feeling lacking in purity deliver me
A test of fidelity deliver me
Deliver me
Deliver me
What if I should find
Youre no good for me

For Keeps

The synonyms below for what is Love
only illustrate how complex the thing is.

Is Love affection, sex, brotherly, motherly
or infatuation?

Is it strong attraction,
Mysterious Intensity
which cannot be defined?

And what of Love of God
which of these below
fits best that loving style?

Forced to look at this
in detail
I had not noticed before,
I now need to decide
which is best in my regard-
the passionate soul-mated-ness Love,

Devotion

Maurice white & philip bailey
Thru devotion, blessed are the children
Praise the teacher, that brings true love to many
Your devotion, opens all lifes treasures
And deliverance, from the fruits of evil.
So our mission, to bring a melody,
Ringin voices sing sweet harmony
For you heres a song, to make your day brighter.
One that will last, you long thru troubled days.
Giving your heart the light to brighten.
All of the dark that falls in your way
You need devotion. bless the children
Deliverance from the fruits of evil
In everyones life, theres a need to be happy.
Let the sun shine, a smile your way.
Open your heart, feel a touch of devotion.
Maybe this song, will help uplift your day.
Make a better way
You need devotion

Lay All Your Love On Me

(b. andersson / b. ulvaeus)
Laa...
I wasnt jealous before we met,
Now every woman I see is a potential threat.
And Im possessive, it isnt nice.
Youve heard me saying that smoking was my only vice.
But now it isnt true,
Now everything is new,
And all Ive learned has overturned.
I beg of you...
Dont go wasting your emotion,
Lay all your love on me.
(dont go sharing your devotion)
It was like shooting a sitting duck.
A little smalltalk, a smile, and baby I was stuck.
I still dont know what youve done with me;
A grown-up woman should never fall so easily.
I feel a kind of fear,
When I dont have you near.
Unsatisfied, I skip my pride,
