“A general is just as good or just as bad as the troops under his command make him.”

And

“Age wrinkles the body. Quitting wrinkles the soul”

And

“Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.”

And

“Only those are fit to live who are not afraid to die.”

And

“The world is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It’s the age-old struggle: the roar of the crowd on the one side, and the voice of your conscience on the other.”

And

“”Duty, Honor, Country” — those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.

And

“Rules are mostly made to be broken and are too often for the lazy to hide behind.”
