  CHECK READING LIST (1)  

A better world shall emerge based on faith and understanding.
      - [Faith]

Americans never quit.
      - [Americans : Quitting]

I am closing my 52 years of military service. When I joined the army, even before the turn of the century, it was the fulfillment of all my boyish hopes and dreams.
  The world has turned over many times since I took the oath on the plain at West Point, and the hopes and dreams have long since vanished, but I still remember the refrain of one of the most barracks ballads of that day which proclaimed most proudly that old soldiers never die; they just fade away.
    And like the old soldier of that ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away, an old soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the light to see that duty. Goodbye.
      - in a speech to a joint session of the U.S. Congress
        [Retirement : Soldiers]

I shall return.
      - [War]

It must be of the spirit if we are to save the flesh.
      - [Spirit]

No army has ever done so much with so little.
      - [Army]

On the fields of friendly strife are sown the seeds that on other days and other fields will bear the fruits of victory.
      - [War]

Rules are mostly made to be broken and are too often for the lazy to hide behind.
      - [Rules]

Security lies in our ability to produce.
      - [Security]

The inescapable price of liberty is an ability to preserve it from destruction.
      - [Liberty]

The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars.
      - [Soldiers]

Wars are caused by undefended wealth.
      - [War]

We are not retreating--we are advancing in another Direction.
      - [War]

Whether in chains or in laurels, liberty knows nothing but victories.
      - [Liberty]
