Appropriately Proud

Ulrich von Wilamowitz-Moellendorff, Erinnerungen 1848-1914 (Leipzig: K. F. Koehler, 1929), pp. 227-8. Trans. Andrew Rickard:

He was appropriately proud of his great nation and the British Empire. As a true patriot he was willing to admit the validity of another’s patriotism and pride. United in this spirit, we good friends sent our sons off to face each other on the battlefield.
