    Lump the whole thing! Say that the Creator made Italy from designs by Michael Angelo!
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Well, on the official record you’re my son. But on this post you’re just another trooper. You heard me tell the recruits what I need from them. Twice that I will expect from you.... You’ve chosen my way of life. I hope you have the guts enough to endure it. But put outa your mind any romantic ideas that it’s a way to glory. It’s a life of suffering and of hardship and uncompromising devotion to your oath and your duty.
    James Kevin McGuinness, and John Ford. Lt. Col. Kirby Yorke (John Wayne)
