The greatest feats of virtue were committed out of love for the fatherland.
A patriot is a person who will not spare his goodness or his life for the sake of exaltation of his homeland, for the love of his people, a man who sacrifices himself for the good and freedom of his country and his people.
The idea of the fatherland is equally fruitful for everyone. Honest she inspires the idea of a feat, dishonest – warns against many infamies, which, without it, would certainly have been committed.
And in solemn years and on weekdays, the idea of the fatherland should equally be inherent in his sons, for only with a clear consciousness does one acquire the right to call himself a citizen.
