JOHN PAUL JONES
American naval officer
(1747 - 1792)

I have not yet begun to fight.
      - when asked whether he had lowered his flag as his ship was sinking
        [War]

If fear is cultivated it will become stronger, if faith is cultivated it will achieve mastery.
      - [Faith : Fear]

The rules of conduct, the maxims of action, and the tactical instincts that serve to gain small victories may always be expanded into the winning of great ones with suitable opportunity; because in human affairs the sources of success are ever to be found in the fountains of quick resolve and swift stroke; and it seems to be a law inflexible and inexorable that he who will not risk cannot win.
      - in a 1791 letter to Vice Admiral Kersaint
        [Risk]
