Our Favorite Memorial Day Quotes: We Remember And Honor | Writer’s Relief

On Memorial Day, Americans honor and remember the military personnel who gave their lives in the service of our country. While the United States has celebrated Memorial Day in one form or another for more than 150 years, it wasn’t made an official federal holiday until 1967! At Writer’s Relief, we salute and remember the brave men and women who sacrificed all to protect our freedom. Here’s a list of our favorite quotes about remembrance and patriotism.

10 Quotes To Help Us Remember And Honor Our Heroes On Memorial Day

From out of the ground a eulogy grows and becomes a poppy.—Nanette L. Avery

 

Over all our happy country—over all our nation spread, is a band of noble heroes—is our army of the dead.—Will Carleton

Let their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored.—Daniel Webster

There are no points of the compass on the chart of true patriotism.—Robert Charles Winthrop

Patriotism is supporting your country all the time and your government when it deserves it.—Mark Twain

 

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter the words but to live by them.—John Fitzgerald Kennedy

 

Ceremonies are important. But our gratitude has to be more than…once-a-year Memorial Day ceremonies. We honor the dead best by treating the living well.—Jennifer M. Granholm
