    As I look around through all the posts I notice that there are many quotes, sayings, etc. that pretty cool. How about everybody throwing out some of your favorites here. They can be patriotic, motivational, comical, or just your own sayings. If you know the author, include that too. Thanks.

    "If you're still conscious, you quit" Drill Instructor Sgt O'Brian 1ST RCTBN CHARLIE CO USMC

    "if you want peace, prepare for war" unknown

    "No man ever said from his deathbed 'I wish I would have worked more'" unknown

    "if you're good at something, never do it for free"

    "Bratya Po Oruzhiyo" translated from Russian "brothers in Arms" motto between between me and my best friend who died last year

    "Be kind to everyone you meet, but have a plan to kill them" SSgt Faulk USMC. I think he got that from someone else though

    "War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself" John Stuart Hall

    "Praise be to the LORD my rock who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle" Psalms 144:1

    "I now know why men who have been to war yearn to reunite. Not to tell stories or look at old pictures. Not to laugh or weep. Comrades gather because they long to be with the men who once acted at their best; men who suffered and sacrificed, who were stripped of their humanity. I did not pick these men. They were delivered by fate and the military. But I know them in a way I know no other men. I have never given anyone such trust. They were willing to guard something more precious than my life. They would have carried my reputation, the memory of me. It was part of the bargain we all made, the reason we were so willing to die for one another. As long as I have my memory, I will think of them all, every day. I am sure that when I leave this world, my last thought will be of my family and my comrades.... Such good men." unknown

    "Do not disturb the disturbed. They might disturb you back."
    I want to say me, but I may have heard it somewhere.

    I've heard it before but can't remember where. It sounds like something he would say.

    A Marine site attributes this quote to a --Michael Norman-- http://www.33usmc.com/ 3rd Battalion 3rd Marines

    I do think it a very touching quote for us that have been there, thank you for the introduction to it!

    Excellent posts- funny, thought provoking - keep them coming.

    A positive attitude won't solve all of hour problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort - author unknown
