    Please note my corrections to your post. The first one is more natural and logical.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Re: PAST TENSE

    Syazain, for the second time, a better title would have been I did not know it was a word.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    Two more things:

    1. You don't need to start every thread with '
    I am here to find a definitive answer ...' Just go ahead and ask your question.

    2. So far you do not appear to have clicked on 'Thank' for any answers you have found useful. We would appreciate this courtesy.
