Canada has always been known for its peaceful people, vibrant culture, and beautiful countryside. But even more that, Canada is known for its patriotism. On Canadian Remembrance Day, let us salute those patriotic men and women who served the nation selflessly. Here are Canadian Remembrance Day quotes to share with your Canadian friends and relatives.
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
In war, there are no unwounded soldiers.
Thomas Dunn English

Our hopes are high. Our faith in the people is great. Our courage is strong. And our dreams for this beautiful country will never die.
Whether we live together in confidence and cohesion; with more faith and pride in ourselves and less self-doubt and hesitation; strong in the conviction that the destiny of Canada is to unite, not divide; sharing in cooperation, not in separation or in conflict; respecting our past and welcoming our future.
Canadian nationalism is a subtle, easily misunderstood but powerful reality, expressed in a way that is not to state directed -- something like a beer commercial or the death of a significant Canadian figure.
We only need to look at what we are really doing in the world and at home and we'll know what it is to be Canadian.
