The greatest general is he who makes the fewest mistakes
The first virtue in a soldier is endurance of fatigue; courage is only the second virtue
I made all my generals out of mud
An army marches on its stomach
A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
