    Yes.
    ďEvery 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.Ē

    You could also use "in".

    If the last word had been "company", you could have added "at" to that list.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
