Quote from C. S. Lewis,

"A man may have to die for our country:
but no man must, in any exclusive sense, live for his country.
He who surrenders himself without reservation
to the temporal claims of a nation, or a party, or a class
is rendering to Caesar that which, of all things,
most emphatically belongs to God: himself."


C. S. Lewis (more quotes by C. S. Lewis or books by/about C. S. Lewis)
