35 America Quotes

Americanism means the virtues of courage, honor, justice, truth, sincerity, and hardihood—the virtues that made America.

That is the American dream and the American value.

America now stands as the world's foremost power. We should be proud: Not since the age of the Romans have one people achieved such preeminence. But we are not Romans; we do not seek an empire. We are Americans, trustees of a vision and a heritage that commit us to the values of democracy and the universal cause of human rights.
