Favorite Patriot Day Quotes

1. "Kita diminta menjadi budayawan patriotik yang jujur; berani mengkritik persekitaran dan negara tanpa berasa khuatir dituduh tidak setia atau berkhianat kerana sebagai pencinta tanah air, kita sedang berperang dengan kejahatan bangsa kita. Pihak yang berkhianat ialah budayawan yang memuji dan mendewakan pemimpin dengan niat mengambil hati (salah atau benar) bagi kepentingan dirinya. Salah atau benar ini adalah tanah air kita. Lantaran itu kita berani mengkritiknya dan berani mempertahankannya."

Our patriotism cannot be constrained by an eight-hour workday."
