Sorry guys, I know I have been "badgering" (That was for jbowles) you a lot about favorite pics and blah, blah, blah. But, again, I am making another page for my website and I would like to see everyones favorite quotes. Make them funny, serious, heartfelt, anyway you like it. And the subject of the quote can be almost anything: duty, honor, courage, love, sadness, fear, etc.

So... SADDLE UP AND GET 'ER DONE!!

Jessep: You want answers?
Kaffee: I want the truth!
Jessep: You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has walls. And those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives...You don't want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall. You need me on that wall.
We use words like honor, code, loyalty...we use these words as the backbone to a life spent defending something. You use 'em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it! I'd rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to!Kaffee: Did you order the code red?
Jessep: (quietly) I did the job you sent me to do.
Kaffee: Did you order the code red?
Jessep: You're goddamn right I did!!

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

Bad guy? Are you serious? Do you need a hug? He was a liar, but a bad guy? Well, if he was bad at least he wasn't a pussy nor did he tolerate those who were. I can't stand to work along side cowards or pussies. I am glad I work in a field in which you can be terminated from employment for being a coward. It's happened several times and we rejoice when it does.

Josef Stalin

"The Pope! How many divisions has he got?"

Background...

www.vision.org/jrnl/0009/pope.html

"As war clouds gathered over Western Europe in 1935, French foreign minister Pierre Laval sought Joseph Stalin's help.

The fragile French government was attempting to bolster its defenses in the face of the growing German military threat. The support of the French Communist Party (which took orders only from Moscow) and of the Roman Catholic Church was essential. Laval approached Stalin in the hope that he would liberalize his stance toward religion and hence accommodate the church in Russia, thereby influencing the papacy to take a more supportive view of the French defensive moves.

Stalin responded derisively, "The pope! How many divisions has he got?"
