A Quote by General George Smith Patton, Jr. on change, enemies, history, soldiers, soul, success, and weapons

To be a successful soldier you must know history. . . . What you must know is how man reacts. Weapons change but man who uses them changes not at all. To win battles you do not beat weapons - you beat the soul of man of the enemy man.

George Patton (1885 - 1945)
