Words From George S. Patton

•A good solution applied with vigor now is better than a perfect solution applied ten minutes later.
•Do more than is required of you.
•Do not fear failure.
•Do not take counsel of your fears.
•Give credit where it’s due.
•In case of doubt, attack.
•It’s the unconquerable soul of man, and not the nature of the weapon he uses, that ensures victory.
•Make your plans to fit the circumstances.
•Moral courage is the most valuable and usually the most absent characteristic in men.
•Say what you mean and mean what you say.
•Take calculated risks.
•There is only one type of discipline, perfect discipline.
Anyone in any walk of life who is content with mediocrity is untrue to himself and the American way.
•You’re never beaten until you admit it.
•It is only by doing things others have not that one can advance.
•God deliver us from our friends, we can handle the enemy.
•As I walk through the valley of death I fear no one, for I am the meanest mother fucker in the valley!
•A pint of sweat will save a gallon of blood.
•All glory is fleeting.
•A leader is a man who can adapt principles to circumstances.
•Success demands a high level of logistical and organizational competence.
•It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
•The test of success is not what you do when your on top. Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.
•The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.
•If I win I can’t be stopped! If I lose I shall be dead.
•Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity
