“Religion is what keeps the poor man from murdering the rich”

“To do all that one is able to do, is to be a man; to do all that one would like to do, is to be a god.”

“The people to fear are not those who disagree with you, but those who disagree with you and are too cowardly to let you know

“If you wish to be a success in the world, promise everything, deliver nothing.”

“One must change one's tactics every ten years if one wishes to maintain one's superiority.”

“The best cure for the body is a quiet mind.”

“It requires more courage to suffer than to die.”~ Napoleon Bonaparte

My men don't surrender. I don't want to hear of any soldier under my command being captured unless he has been hit. Even if you are hit, you can still fight back. ~ Gen. George Patton

We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the Old. ~ Winston Churchill

Lord of the rings:return of the king

Aragorn(at the black gates before battle):

Hold your ground! Hold your ground!

Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers,

I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me.

A day may come when the courage of men fails,

when we forsake our friends

and break all bonds of fellowship,

but it is not this day.

An hour of wolves and shattered shields,

when the age of men comes crashing down,

but it is not this day!

This day we fight!!

By all that you hold dear on this good Earth,

I bid you stand, Men of the West!!!
