Famous quotes containing the word military:

    Nothing changes my twenty-six years in the military. I continue to love it and everything it stands for and everything I was able to accomplish in it. To put up a wall against the military because of one regulation would be doing the same thing that the regulation does in terms of negating people.
    Margarethe Cammermeyer (b. 1942)

    “My ancestors were all famous for military genius.”
    My Lady smiled graciously. “It often runs in families,” she remarked: “just as a love for pastry does.”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    [I]t is a civil Cowardice to be backward in asserting what you ought to expect, as it is a military Fear to be slow in attacking when it is your Duty.
    Richard Steele (1672–1729)
