DEFENSE

The nation which forgets its defenders will be itself forgotten.
      - Calvin Coolidge

For among other evils caused by being disarmed, it renders you contemptible; which is one of those disgraceful things which a prince must guard against.
      - Niccolo Machiavelli (Macchiavelli)

In cases of defense 'tis best to weigh
  The enemy more mighty than he seems.
    So the proportions of defense are filled;
      Which of a weak and niggardly projection
        Doth, like a miser, spoil his coat with scanting
          A little cloth.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (Dauphin at II, iv)

We must take care always to keep ourselves, by suitable establishments, in a respectable defensive posture.
      - George Washington
