George S. Patton
Courage is fear holding on a minute longer.
Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable.
If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.
Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.
Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of men who follow and of the man who leads that gains the victory.
The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.
You need to overcome the tug of people against you as you reach for high goals.
It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
George S. Patton — quotes and aphorisms
Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood.
Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.
If a man does his best, what else is there?
