Famous quotes containing the word military:

    In politics, it seems, retreat is honorable if dictated by military considerations and shameful if even suggested for ethical reasons.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)

    Personal prudence, even when dictated by quite other than selfish considerations, surely is no special virtue in a military man; while an excessive love of glory, impassioning a less burning impulse, the honest sense of duty, is the first.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    I would sincerely regret, and which never shall happen whilst I am in office, a military guard around the President.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)
