Brief Biography

George Smith Patton, Jr. (November 11, 1885 - December 21, 1945) was an officer in the United States Army best known for his leadership as a general during World War II. He also developed a reputation for eccentricity and for sometimes-controversial gruff outspokenness -- such as during his profanity-laced speech to his expeditionary troops. - Wikipedia

              It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather, we should thank God that such men lived.

                If you are going to win any battle, you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do... the body is never tired if the mind is not tired.

                    The time to take counsel of your fears is before you make an important battle decision. That's the time to listen to every fear you can imagine! When you have collected all the facts and fears and made your decision, turn off all your fears and go ahead.

                        All men are timid on entering any fight. Whether it is the first or the last fight, all of us are timid. Cowards are those who let their timidity get the better of their manhood.

                                        Moral courage is the most valuable and usually the most absent characteristic in men.

                                              The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

                                                Don't tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results.

                                                    Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack.

                                                      Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.

                                                          You need to overcome the tug of people against you as you reach for high goals.
