|My two favorites are:
"My religous belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to always be ready, no matter when it may overtake me."
Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson
"I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which, in truth, they are. If I killed them all there would be news from hell before breakfast.
William Tecumseh Sherman
I have both these quotes on my desk and read them everyday. Stonewalls to reaffirm my faith and Shermans because the truth in it always makes me smile.
