My kind of loyalty was loyalty to one's country, not to its institutions or
its officeholders. The country is the real thing, the substantial thing, the
eternal thing; it is the thing to watch over, and care for, and be loyal to;
institutions are extraneous, they are its mere clothing, and clothing can wear
out, become ragged, cease to be comfortable, cease to protect the body from
winter, disease, and death.
- A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court
