The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.
Victory belongs to the most persevering.
Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
From time to time, the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants and patriots.
We have met the enemy and they are ours!
Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry
If men make war in slavish obedience to rules, they will fail.
General Ulysses S. Grant
Some of you young men think that war is all glamour and glory, but let me tell you, boys, it is all hell!
General William T. Sherman
It is my earnest hope - indeed the hope of all mankind - that from this solemn occasion a better world shall emerge out of the blood and carnage of the past, a world found upon faith and understanding, a world dedicated to the dignity of man and the fulfillment of his most cherished wish for freedom, tolerance and justice.
General Douglas MacArthur
The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to
succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with
anybody that stands right, stand with him while he is right, and part with
him when he goes wrong.
