The Heart of A Filipino

Our hearts where they rocked our cradle,
Our love where we spent our toil,
And our faith, and our hope, and our honor,
We pledge to our native soil.
God gave all men all earth to love,
But since our hearts are small,
Ordained for each one spot should prove
Beloved over all.
~Rudyard Kipling

I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives.  I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.  ~Abraham Lincoln

It is not for him to pride himself who loveth his own country, but rather for him who loveth the whole world.  The earth is but one country and mankind its citizens.  ~Baha’u’llah

A little faith will bring your soul to heaven, but a lot of faith will bring heaven to your soul.  ~Author Unknown

“I sought to hear the voice of God and climbed the topmost steeple, but God declared: “Go down again – I dwell among the people.”
― John Henry Newman

  He is a poor patriot whose patriotism does not enable him to understand how all men everywhere feel about their altars and their hearthstones, their flag and their fatherland.  ~Harry Emerson Fosdick

 God give me work, till my life shall end
And life, till my work is done.
~Epitaph of Winifred Holtby

There is no wealth but life.  ~John Ruskin

“I am not sure exactly what heaven will be
like, but I know that when we die and it
comes time for God to judge us, he will
not ask, ‘How many good things have you
done in your life?’ rather he will ask,
‘How much love did you put into what you
did?” ~ Mother Teresa

Our country is not the only thing to which we
owe our allegiance. It is also owed to
justice and to humanity. Patriotism consists
not in waving the flag, but in striving that
our country shall be righteous as well as
strong. ~James Bryce

It is not for him to pride himself who loveth
his own country, but rather for him who
loveth the whole world. The earth is but one
country and mankind its citizens.
~Baha’u’llah
