Post Quotes are always nice to read

Anyone who has a Quote or knows of a good one post it here.

Hence the saying: If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

- Sun Tzu, The Art of War

"The object of being in the military is not to die for you country, but to make sure some other basterd dies for his."

“Almighty God; We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection; that Thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United states at large. And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."

George Washington's prayer for the US

When you were born, everyone around you was smiling, and you were crying. Live life so that when you die, everyone around you is crying and you are smiling.

You know what they say about he who hesitates in war, is that he who hesitates is lost

In order for evil triumph, is for good men to do nothing.

I can't remember who said it.
