[image]http://images.viewimages.com/wm/LS016874.JPG[/image] Now that I have your attention, we have Babe of the Day, Porn Babe of the Day, everything but Quote of the Day. So lets see if we can keep our hands on the keyboard and keep this one running as long as the others. Rules: Any inspiring quote from someone living or dead. No filth No political correctness, post what you will, but post at your own risk. [flame] Make it worthwhile reading for others. Here's mine for starters, a little long but relevant: [b]Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of Hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature placed in our power. Three millions of people armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone: it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave." --Patrick Henry[/b]

something to the effect of: "first we are going to blind it, then were going cut its head off, and then we are going to kill it." I can't remember if it was Colin Powell or Stormin' Norman during the Gulf War, talking about the Iraqi military.

I don't want to get any messages saying, "I am holding my position." We are not holding a Goddamned thing. Let the Germans do that. We are advancing constantly and we are not interested in holding onto anything, except the enemy's balls. We are going to twist his balls and kick the living shit out of him all of the time. Our basic plan of operation is to advance and to keep on advancing regardless of whether we have to go over, under, or through the enemy. We are going to go through him like crap through a goose; like shit through a tin horn!"-Patton (who else?)

Homer:"Beer: The cause of and solution to all of life's problems" hehe And now a serious one: "Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"- Patrick Henry "... God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ... And what country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure." -- Richard Henry Lee "If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." --Samuel Adams

Hale volunteered, in early September 1776, to perform spy duty behind the British lines on Long Island. Disguised as a schoolmaster, he secured vital military information, but on September 21, before he could return to safe territory, he was captured. The next morning he was hanged in New York City by the British as a spy. His last words are supposed to have been: [B]"I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country."[/b] Nathan Hale

Be an example to your men, in your duty and in private life. Never spare yourself, and let the troops see that you don't in your endurance of fatigue and privation. always be tactful and well-mannered and teach your subordinates to do the same. Avoid excessive sharpness or harshness of voice, which usually indicates the man who has shortcomings of his own to hide. --Field Marshall Erwin Rommel

One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that 'violence begets violence.' I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure — and in some cases I have — that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy.

[b]“Come and get them”.[/b] When the Persian Emperor Xerxes invaded Greece in 480 BCE he had to pass through Thermopylae (the hot gates) a narrow defile and choke point. While the city-states of Greece were organizing an army and navy to fight the invader a small force of Spartans, Thespians and others led by one of the two Spartan kings, Leonidas, held them for seven days. After a number of his attacks were repulsed, Xerxes sent an emissary to Leonidas offering amnesty, wealth and position for all in the new order that the Emperor would make in the conquered land. All they would have to do is give up their arms. Leonidas’ reply was “Molon Labe”. The Spartans and their allies died to the last man, but the standard of valor set by their sacrifice inspired the Greeks to rally and, in that fall and spring, defeat the Persians at Salamis and Plataea and preserve the beginnings of Western democracy and freedom from perishing in the cradle.
