Nation Building Quotes

Like any good story worth telling, the story of a nation is a complex tale of heroes and villains, death and glory, and love and hate. The stories that make up the fabric of our heritage are filled with these elements. 

Nation building is a political ideology of creating a mass sense of nationalism and national identity within a state. It often serves as the basis of a state’s founding principles but can be a form of political propaganda. A nation is defined by a common language, common ethnicity or even common cultural elements such as religion or shared values. Nation building takes place when groups mobilise to differentiate themselves from other groups and then implement policies that reinforce this differentiation.

Moreover, the price is often blood and treasure. If you’re looking for nation building quotes, look no further. These are some of the most inspiring and motivational quotes about nation building.
