Nationality Quotations

Other people have a nationality. The Irish and the Jews have a psychosis.
Brendan Behan

No matter the nationality, no matter the religion, no matter the ethnic background, America brings out the best in people.
Arnold Schwarzenegger

Nationality is the miracle of political independence; race is the principle of physical analogy.
Benjamin Disraeli

Parents and schools should place great emphasis on the idea that it is all right to be different. Racism and all the other 'isms' grow from primitive tribalism, the instinctive hostility against those of another tribe, race, religion, nationality, class or whatever. You are a lucky child if your parents taught you to accept diversity.
Roger Ebert

The human animal cannot be trusted for anything good except en masse. The combined thought and action of the whole people of any race, creed or nationality, will always point in the right direction.
Harry S. Truman
