The difference between patriotism and nationalism

“The difference between patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does.

“The first attitude creates a feeling of responsibility, but the second a feeling of blind arrogance that leads to war.”

– Sydney J. Harris
