Soldiers

Famous quotes containing the word soldiers:

    By and by when each nation has 20,000 battleships and 5,000,000 soldiers we shall all be safe and the wisdom of statesmanship will stand confirmed.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him sour wine, and saying, “If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!”
    Bible: New Testament, Luke 23:36,37.

    It is not enough that our life is an easy one. We must live on the stretch, retiring to our rest like soldiers on the eve of a battle, looking forward to the strenuous sortie of the morrow.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
