Here we examine some quotes from several public figures, themed around patriotism, heroism, bravery and freedom, that can be shared in honor of Memorial Day.
Abraham Lincoln, late former U.S. president
"Honor to the Soldier, and Sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country's cause. Honor also to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field, and serves, as best he could, the same cause--honor to him, less than to him, who braves, for the common good, the storms of heaven and the storms of conflict ."
Theodore Roosevelt, overdue former U.S. president
"We must dare to be great; and we must realize that greatness is that the fruit of toil and sacrifice and high courage."
