Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think. - Martin Luther King, Jr.

The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out... without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable. - H. L. Mencken

Every problem has a solution that is simple, inexpensive and wrong.

“The idea...that our professional military men and women train for years without knowing whether they will ever have to actually carry out their missions to the fullest extent of their abilities is the very heart of what service is all about. Heroes aren't designated in advance. Everyone must always be ready to execute.

In my experience, it's always the greatest heroes who claim they never did anything beyond what any of their buddies would have done in the same situation. Our training and our culture breed that response into us all, no matter what war we were part of. You train yourself to a standard and thereby make yourself interchangeable with others who share the same standard. And that gives everyone an equal claim to the pride that goes with having served your country.”

" When that hotshot Jet Jockey has to punch out over enemy held territory, and he's hiding in a muddy hole covered with Palm leaves, who do you think his best friend is? ME, cause I'm the guy who's job it is to go into that contested territory, under enemy Fire 9 out of 10 times, and pull him out so he doesn't get Dragged by his toenails to the Hanoi Hilton so The left in our own country can Ridicule him,..and when he gets on my bird, he's smiling at me an babbling so much he pees and craps himself at the same time! That's when I put a Candy bar in his pocket and a cigarette in his mouth and tell him WELCOME BACK" - USAF Warrant Officer Ross Carver to Capt. Bart Clarke, from the Book( and later the Movie) BAT-21...

Here are a few good ones from my Grandaddy.

"Bad things are going to happen, it's your job to overcome them."

"Don't change yourself to make someone happy, unless that someone is you."

"Never believe you're the smartest person in the room"

I don't take no anesthetic. Did Lincoln ask for any girlie gas when they blowed his head off?

Hey missy! How 'bout some sammiches?!

The only Charity I care about dances for money in a g-string.
