    I forgot where i heard this but it would be a cool motto for some spec ops unit- "Its not about dying for your country, its about making your enemy die for his."
    This isnt my favorite quote, its too cold to be a favorite quote.


    Then theres this one from Vince Lombardi that i really like-
    "The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will."

    this one is good, but i dont know who said it
    "The best kind of pride is that which compels a man to do his best even when no one is watching."


    This final quote is from Teddy Roosevelt-
    "It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

    I guess it could be played both ways, but this stopped being a "flame me" thread 12 hours ago.

    More than a quote; but it's pretty good nonetheless..

    "Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all the time thing. You don't win once in a while; you don't do things right once in a while; you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

    "There is no room for second place. There is only one place in my game, and that's first place. I have finished second twice in my time at Green Bay, and I don't ever want to finish second again. There is a second place bowl game, but it is a game for losers played by losers. It is and always has been an American zeal to be first in anything we do, and to win, and to win, and to win. "

    Lombardi dominates alot of "quote" or "sayings" threads I have seen, and for good reason. The no-nonsense attitude helps I guess.

    The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it's yours. But to win it requires total dedication and a total break with the world of your past, with the doctrine that man is sacrificial animal who exists for the pleasure of others. Fight for the value of your person. Fight for the virtue of your pride. Fight for the essence, which is man, for his sovereign rational mind. Fight with the radiant certainty and the absolute rectitude of knowing that yours is the morality of life and yours is the battle for any achievement, any value, any grandeur, any goodness, any joy that has ever existed on this earth.
