A Quote by Henry Peter, Lord Brougham on age, military, soldiers, and trust

Let the soldier be abroad if he will, he can do nothing in this age. There is another personage,- a personage less imposing in the eyes of some, perhaps insignificant. The schoolmaster is abroad, and I trust to him, armed with his primer, against the soldier in full military array.

A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on business, doctors, love, philosophy, poets, purity, sleep, and soldiers

A farmer, a hunter, a soldier, a reporter, even a philosopher, may be daunted; but nothing can deter a poet, for he is actuated by pure love. Who can predict his comings and goings? His business calls him out at all hours, even when doctors sleep.

A Quote by George Washington on admiration, army, fidelity, kindness, patience, rest, soldiers, and suffering

One of George Washington's main concerns was to make sure that his soldiers had adequate supplies of meat: A part of the army has been a week without any kind of flesh, and the rest three or four days. Naked and starving as they are, we cannot enough admire the incomparable patience and fidelity of the soldiery, that they have not been ere this excited by their suffering to a general mutiny and dispersion.

The most vital quality a soldier can possess is self-confidence, utter, complete and bumptious.

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.

A Quote by George Bernard Shaw on soldiers

You can always tell an old soldier by the inside of his holsters and cartridge boxes. The young ones carry pistols and cartridges: the old ones, grub.

A Quote by George Bernard Shaw on cowardice, justice, and soldiers

As an old soldier, I admit the cowardice: it's as universal as seasickness, and matters just as little.
