National Ideals

A man’s country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.
**George William Curtis

The Wonderous Human

“Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the

huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the

vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars,

yet they pass by themselves without wondering.”

–Saint Augustine
