Quote
"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are."
-Teddy Roosevelt

“Duty is the sublimest word in our language. Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more. You should never wish to do less.” -Robert E. Lee

“The soldier who has died due to the failure of his officer is a crime before God. So study hard, young Lieutenant. Prepare yourself well. Burn the midnight oil so that in your old age you will not look down at your hands to find his blood red upon them.”
–Gen. George Patton

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."

-Teddy Roosevelt (My father's yearbook quote.)

"Better to fight for something than to live for nothing."

- Gen. George Patton

"Be sure that you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm."

-Abraham Licoln

"Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest." 

-Mark Twain

"Duty, Honor, Country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.

- Gen. Douglas MacAurthur

"The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time."

- Abraham Lincoln

"Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far."

-Theodore Roosevelt

"There is only one sort of discipline, perfect discipline."

-Gen. George Patton

"You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life."

-Winston Churchill

N. Vest replied to Will's discussion The red pill
"Are you imply that we shouldn't be judging them by their words? which is the only thing we have to judge them by.  If it looks like a bunch of "men" bitching about women what evidence do we have to think that it is anything else?"
