Topic: Patton.... best quote ever.

The object of war is not to die for your country, but to make the other bastard die for his. General George S. Patton

I have to say when I think of quotes this one is at the top!

I think that this was taken from a speech that Patton gave to the 4th Armored Division right before D-Day. The whole opening scene from Patton is based on that speech, but I have not been able to definitively confirm that. Does make a fine quote and a good story though.

Topic: Toss-Up

My favorite quote by Gen. Patton is a toss up between these three.

May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't.
- General George Patton Jr

Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way. -
General George Patton Jr

Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.
- General George Patton Jr

I try to live by all three of these, especially the last one.

I really like the one about making the other guy die for his country. Patton was colorful.

I must agree he's one hell of a speaker.
I love it when he says,"You must do your damdest and win."
