Patriotism is as fierce as a fever, pitiless as the grave, blind as a stone, and irrational as a headless hen.

-Ambrose Bierce

I love my country too much to be a nationalist.

-Albert Camus

Bierce's definition of Patriot from The Devil's Dictionary:

Patriot, n. One to whom the interests of a part seem superior to those of the whole. The dupe of statesmen and the tool of conquerors.
