We shall always be a small minority in the world, but, when a small nation accomplishes something with its limited means, what it achieves has an immense and exceptional value, like the widow's mite. . . . It is a deliberate and discerning love of a nation that appeals to me, not the indiscriminate love that assumes everything to be right because it bears a national label. . . .

When we do that, the humblest of us will be serving in that great army which achieves the welfare of the world. (Quote by - Parker, Theodore)
