„Patriotism is not necessarily included in rebellion. A man may hate his king, yet not love his country.“

The Patriot (1774)
Contexto: Some claim a place in the list of patriots, by an acrimonious and unremitting opposition to the court. This mark is by no means infallible. Patriotism is not necessarily included in rebellion. A man may hate his king, yet not love his country.

„Grey was not alone in his hatred. The whole of Changi hated King.“

—  James Clavell, livro King Rat

Part 1, Ch. 1.
King Rat (1962)
Contexto: Grey was not alone in his hatred. The whole of Changi hated King. They hated him for his muscular body, the clear glow in his blue eyes. In the twilight world of the half alive there were no fat or well-built or round or smooth or fair-built or thick-built men. There were only faces dominated by eyes and set on bodies that were skin over sinews and bones. No difference between them but age and face and height. And in all this world, only the King ate like a man, smoked like a man, slept like a man, dreamed like a man and looked like a man.
