| Age wrinkles the body. Quitting wrinkles the soul.
| Whether in chains or in laurels, liberty knows nothing but victories.
| I've looked that old scoundrel death in the eye many times but this time I think he has me on the ropes.
| The world is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It's the age-old struggle: the roar of the crowd on the one side, and the voice of your conscience on the other.
| Years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.
| I have just returned from visiting the Marines at the front, and there is not a finer fighting organization in the world!
| I suppose, in a way, this has become part of my soul. It is a symbol of my life. Whatever I have done that really matters, I've done wearing it. When the time comes, it will be in this that I journey forth. What greater honor could come to an American, and a soldier?
| In war, you win or lose, live or die - and the difference is just an eyelash.
| A better world shall emerge based on faith and understanding.
| Our country is now geared to an arms economy bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and an incessant propaganda of fear.
| They died hard, those savage men - like wounded wolves at bay. They were filthy, and they were lousy, and they stunk. And I loved them.
| Life is a lively process of becoming.
| It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear.
| Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear - kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor - with the cry of grave national emergency.
| Build me a son, O Lord, who will be strong enough to know when he is weak, and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid, one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, and humble and gentle in victory.
| We are not retreating - we are advancing in another direction.
| Never give an order that can't be obeyed.
| In war there is no substitute for victory.
| Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it.
| The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.
