Breathes There The Man... From The Lay Of The Last Minstrel Comments

Rating: 2.8
Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
'This is my own, my native land!'

...

Sir Walter Scott

This poem epitomizes the heart of patriotism. Back in the '40's - -the time when I was in school- - we memorized this and it has stayed with me over the years. Our lives were enriched by these words- - -and pride in our country was at its zenith. It is as meaningful today as it was then. Maybe even more so.

That scene introduced me to the poem. I'm so thankful they included it.
