Help with a quotation!

Topic: Help with a quotation!

I read a quote not too long ago that I liked. I recall that it had some military application, but I am not sure. It goes something like...."The best thing to do in a crisis situation is the 'right thing', the second best thing to do is the 'wrong thing' and the worst thing you can do is 'nothing at all."

Can anyone confirm this for me and who may have actually said it?

Howdy, I'm moving your question to the correct forum (the "Questions" one is for more technical questions about the site itself, trouble-shooting and all that). Just so you know what happened to it .

Welcome to the forum.

Hi Patriot, welcome to the forum

I think the quote you are looking for is this one:
"In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing." (Theodore Roosevelt)
