The young do not know enough to be prudent, and therefore they attempt the impossible -- and achieve it, generation after generation.

People ask the difference between a leader and a boss. The leader works in the open, and the boss in covert. The leader leads, and the boss drives.
It is better to be faithful than famous.
There can be no fifty-fifty Americanism in this country. There is room here for only 100 % Americanism, only for those who are Americans and nothing else.
A man who is good enough to shed his blood for his country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards. More than that no man is entitled to, and less than that no man shall have.
The pacifist is as surely a traitor to his country and to humanity as is the most brutal wrongdoer.
Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.
Speak well of your enemies... you made them.
The hour of departure has arrived and we go our ways; I to die, and you to live. Which is better? Only God knows.
Every immigrant who comes here should be required within five years to learn English or leave the country.
The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life.
It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed. In this life we get nothing save by effort.
The general who advances without coveting fame and retreats without fearing disgrace, whose only thought is to protect his country and do good service for his sovereign, is the jewel of the kingdom.
If our soldiers are not overburdened with money, it is not because they have a distaste for riches; if their lives are not unduly long, it is not because they are disinclined to longevity.
The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
Hence that general is skilful in attack whose opponent does not know what to defend; and he is skilful in defense whose opponent does not know what to attack.
Therefore the skilful leader subdues the enemy's troops without any fighting; he captures their cities without laying siege to them; he overthrows their kingdom without lengthy operations in the field.
In any moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.
To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society.
The boy who is going to make a great man must not make up his mind merely to overcome a thousand obstacles, but to win in spite of a thousand repulses and defeats.
Difficulties mastered are opportunities won.
