While your Memorial Day weekend might be packed with family fun and summer activities—we’re big fans of a night of backyard camping or a classic backyard barbecue—we also think it’s important to pause the festivities in remembrance of the real meaning and history of Memorial Day. In honor of that sentiment, we’ve compiled a list of Memorial Day quotes that will help express gratitude to the sacrifice so many have made in service to our country.

While we’re pausing to honor the military personnel who’ve sacrificed their lives for our freedom, it’s also a good time to note that some of our Armed Forces have been serving in some capacity while battling for the health of our nation during the Covid-19 pandemic. From military doctors and nurses, members of the Armed Forces helping with vaccine distributions, and those who don’t have the option to work from home during the global health crisis, we’re grateful for their courage and service (if you need help coming up with the words to share your thanks to essential workers, too, these patriotic quotes or thankful quotes can help). Here are the best 20 quotes to inspire your own words and sentiments this Memorial Day.
