"When they go to Heaven,
To Saint Peter they will tell,
One more soldier reporting, sir,
I've served my time in hell."

"To march agains the war is not to give peave a chance, it's to give tyranny a chance. It's to give the Iraqi nuke a chance. It is to give the next terrorist mass murder a chance. It's to march for the furtherance of evil instead of the vanquishing of evil"
-Michael Kelly

i have a forever amount, here are some for the moment, i have to find my others... (hold up, the snowflakes stopped all the sudden...)

~These are the 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 it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered, yet we have this consolation w/ us, that the harder the conflict the more glorius the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, esteem too lightly, it is dearness that gives everything its value. ~Thomas Paine

Success is how high you bounce when you hit the bottom. ~Gen. George Patton

It isn't life that weighs us down, its the way we carry it. ~Elizabeth Potter

Don't jump on me from choosing something Hitler said.

This one is similar and its by Gen. MacArthur, so its my favorite.
