soldiers

A Quote by Paul H. Dunn on bravery, defeat, justice, soldiers, and struggle

You remember the Duke of Wellington was talking of the Battle of Waterloo when he said that it was not that the British soldiers were braver than the French soldiers. It was just that they were brave five minutes longer. And in our struggles sometimes that's all it takes-to be brave five minutes longer, to try just a little harder, to not give up on ourselves when everything seems to beg for our defeat.

From the time I was twelve years old until I retired last year at the age of fifty-seven, the Army was my life. I loved commanding soldiers and being around people who had made a serious commitment to serve their country.

A Quote by Napoléon Buonaparte (Napoléon I) on country, death, equality, fighting, liberty, memory, men, people, soldiers, and tyranny

Washington is dead! This great man fought against Tyranny; he established the liberty of his country. His memory will always be dear to the French people, as it will be to all free men of the two worlds; and especially to French soldiers, who, like him and the American soldiers, have combated for liberty and equality.

A Quote by Kevin Costner on action, birth, death, horses, nobility, and soldiers

I have seen soldiers panic at the first sight of battle, and a wounded squire pulling arrows out from his wound to fight and save his dying horse. Nobility is not a birth right but is defined by one's action.

A Quote by Karl Raimund Popper on confidence, day, failure, leadership, losing, problems, and soldiers

Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.

Karl Popper (1902 - 1994)
