The moment the first American soldier sets foot on the Japanese mainland, all prisoners of war will be shot.
I now close my military career and just fade away, an old soldier whotried to dohis dutyas Godgavehimthelight to see that duty.Douglas MacArthur
I am a person always full of contradictions... It was hard to choose whether to devote myself to revolution as a soldier or as a writer.ba jin
It's best that you know this immediately: I have never been a Fascist, but always a soldier who obeyed orders.rodolfo graziani
Gertrude Stein, all courage and will, is a soldier of minimalism. Her work, unlike the resonating silences in the art of Samuel Beckett, embodies in its loquacity and verbosity the curious paradox of the minimalist form. This art of the nuance in repetition and placement she shares with the orchestral compositions of Philip Glass.elizabeth hardwick
...the basic principles of the military services are unchangeable. Courage and candor, obedience and comradeship, love of fatherland and loyalty to the State: these are ever the distinguishing characteristics of the soldier and sailor. Building character through intelligent training and education is always the first and greatest goal.erich raeder
In the US. Infantry Manual published during World War II, the soldier was told what to do if a live grenade fell into the trench where he and others were sitting: to wrap himself around the grenade so as to at least save the others. (If no one "volunteered," all would be killed, and there were only a few seconds to decide who would be the hero.)Anatol Rapoport
The American soldier demonstrated that, properly equipped, trained and led, he has no superior among all the armies of the world.lucian truscott
A soldier has one item that cannot be neglected. His feet. They are his wheels, his mechanised warfare.leon uris
What you did was the greatest thing accomplished by any private soldier of all of the armies of Europe.Ferdinand Foch
His public service extended over many years and over a wide range of official duty. He was a patriotic citizen, a lover of the flag and of our free institutions, an industrious and conscientious civil officer, a soldier of dauntless courage, a loyal comrade and friend, a sympathetic and helpful neighbor, and the honored head of a happy Christian home. He has steadily grown in the public esteem, and the impartial historian will not fail to recognize the conscientiousness, the manliness, and the courage that so strongly characterized his whole public career.rutherford b. hayes
Ben Battle was a soldier bold, And used to war's alarms; But a cannon-ball took off his legs, So he laid down his arms.thomas hood
Chief among our gains must be reckoned this possibility of choice, the recognition of many possible ways of life, where other civilizations have recognized only one. Where other civilizations give a satisfactory outlet to only one temperamental type, be he mystic or soldier, business man or artist, a civilization in which there are many standards offers a possibility of satisfactory adjustment to individuals of many different temperamental types, of diverse gifts and varying interests.Margaret Mead
As a Special-Forces commander, Sharon was on the front and in front of his men performing daring assaults that saved Israel in both the 1967 and 1973 wars. Hated though he was abroad, Sharon was, nevertheless, a soldier in the style of 'Stonewall' Jackson, not Dubya the Deserter, to whom he and the Likudniks were often compared.ilana mercer
See that unfortunate soldier who is falling hurt to death ("tombe blessé à...", Fr.) on the battlefield; he learns that his folks have vanquished and dies happy. He detached himself from himself (s'est détacher de lui-même", Fr.), has identified himself with something greater and more lasting than himself; his homeland ("patrie", Fr.); thus, while dying as an individual, he has the certainty to survive in a larger existence.african spir
That in the captain's but a choleric word, Which in the soldier is flat blasphemy.william shakespeare
I... gave you an order, soldier! Now pull out!
God's soldier be he! Had I as many sons as I have hairs, I would not wish them to a fairer death: And so his knell is knoll'd.william shakespeare
He is a soldier fit to stand by Cæsar And give direction.william shakespeare
A soldier is an anachronism of which we must get rid.George Bernard Shaw
Let the soldier be abroad if he will, he can do nothing in this age. There is another personage, a personage less imposing in the eyes of some, perhaps insignificant. The schoolmaster is abroad, and I trust to him, armed with his primer, against the soldier in full military array.
For if Iran remains exalted, we too shall be exalted. I am a lowly soldier of the Imam Khamenei. Hizbullah youths acted on behalf of the Imam Khomeini, with the aid of Imam Hussein, and sent their blessings to the Iranian people.

My name is Helena Dolph Jackson, the daughter of a proud and noble soldier! I can finally see my family... again.
THESE are the times that try men's souls . The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country ; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.
