The tumult and the shouting dies; The captains and the kings depart- Still stands Thine ancient Sacrifice, An humble and a contrite heart.

A Quote by Roland Huntford on age, corruption, desires, direction, heroism, life, sacrifice, self-sacrifice, victory, and worth

. . . He had by now divested himself of schoolboy attitudes. He was unburdened by the desire to be a martyr or a hero. Any thoughts in that direction, Belgica effectively had quashed. Heroism in the corrupt sense of the age almost by definition, meant wanton self-sacrifice and bungling. For neither had he any taste. He wanted rational attainment; victory, but not at any price. No point upon the globe was worth the cost of a single life.

For you to be successful, sacrifices must be made. It's better that they are made by others but failing that, you'll have to make them yourself.

A Quote by Richard Marcinko on day, death, democracy, fighting, nations, and sacrifice

When you fight, you don't fight for abstract values like the flag, or the nation, or democracy. You fight for your buddy. You fight to keep him alive, and he fights to keep you alive, and you go on that way, day after day, battle after battle. And when one of your buddies dies, something inside you dies as well. But you go on. You fight, so that his death isn't meaningless, his sacrifice isn't for nothing.

A Quote by Richard L. Evans on love, responsibility, sacrifice, and sincerity

Sincere love is something that sacrifices-not something that indulges itself. Sincere love is responsible. It would never knowingly hurt, but would heal.
