| 'I shall return'
'There is no security on this earth, there is only opportunity.'
'To dilute the will to win is to destroy the purpose of the game. There is no substitute for victory.'
'Americans never quit.'
'Duty, honor, country: Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are your rallying point to build courage when courage seems to fail, to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith, to create hope when hope becomes forlorn.'
'Old soldiers never die; they just fade away. And like the old soldier in that ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away, an old soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the sight to see that duty.'
'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.'
'One cannot wage war under present conditions without the support of public opinion, which is tremendously molded by the press and other forms of propaganda.'
'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.'
'No man is enitled to the blessings of freedom unless he be vigilant in its preservation.'
-- General Douglas MacArthur
