I'm surprised no-one put this one in yet:

Major General John Sedgwick's last words at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House, 1864:

"What? Men dodging this way for single bullets? What will you do when they open fire along the whole line? I am ashamed of you. They couldn't hit an elephant at this dist-..."

Tsk, tsk. Didn't you hear G. W. Bush when he said: "I think anybody who doesn't think I'm smart enough to handle the job is misunderestimating." :lol:

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!!!

God help me, I do love it so!"

He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country."

It is well that war is so terrible -- lest we should grow too fond of it. Gen. Robert E. Lee


Perhaps he understood how addicting Non-Hasbro approved Risk was going to be?!?
