Native Land

Cling to thy native land, for it is the land of thy fathers!


My native land, good-night!


How dear is our native land to all noble hearts!


The love for our native land strengthens our individual and national character.

Alexander Hamilton.

Let our last sleep be in the graves of our native land!


Breathes there a man, with soul so dead, who never to himself hath saith, This is my own, my native land!

Sir Walter Scott.

A man’s love for his native land lies deeper than any logical expression, among those pulses of the heart which vibrate to the sanctities of home, and to the thoughts which leap up from his father’s graves.
