       "Reputation is what men and women think of us; character is what God and angels know of us."

       "That government is best which governs least."

       "These are times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman."

       "When we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember that virtue is not hereditary."


Quotes by George S. Patton

If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."

       "We are never defeated unless we give up on God."

"Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have."


Quote by Ambrose Redmoon

       "Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear."


Quotes by Theodore Roosevelt

       "Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorius triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
