    "YOU BETTER NOT (insert infraction here) AGAIN OR I WILL FIRE YOUR ASS SO FAST YOU WILL PASS YOURSELF COMING IN THAT DOOR!!!"

    That one has been fairly motivational to me in my younger years.

    A variation from the original motto of the Navy SEALs: The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in battle.

    Here are some words I live by:

    "Slow is smooth. Smooth is fast."

    "If you can't make it, fake it."

    "If you ain't cheatin', you ain't tryin'." (I use this as it applies to officer survival, not academics.)

    "Act like a man of thought. Think like a man of action." -Thomas Mann

    "My life is simple, my food is plain, and my quarters are uncluttered. In all things, I have sought clarity. I face the troubles and problems of life and death willingly. Virtue, integrity and courage are my priorities. I can be approached, but never pushed; befriended but never coerced; killed but never shamed." - Yi Sunshin, Last letter to an old friend.

    "There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road. By doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses one still gets wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you will get the same soaking. This understanding extends to all things." -Yamamoto Tsunetomo, Hagakure

    To fight and conquer in one hundred battles is not the highest skill. To subdue the enemy with no fight at all, that's the highest skill.
    - Sun Tsu
    "If everyone is thinking alike, then someone isn't thinking." -Gen. George S. Patton

    +1 on this and "Slow is Smooth. Smooth is fast"

    I also like "Keep a positive attitude. It may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort"

    Sorry if this is a but much but these are motivational to me.

    Choose the right, if you are doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about. Choose wrongly and you will have everything to worry about. - me

    And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose ye this day whom ye will serve...but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. (Joshua 24:15)


    "There are but two parties now, Traitors and Patriots, and I want hereafter to be ranked with the latter . . . We have a government, laws and a flag, and they must all be sustained." – Ulysses S. Grant

    Thank you, God. The man who said that the paralyzed could walk if a Democrat were in the White House will not be Vice President. The man who mocked Iyad Allawi, Premier of Iraq, who risks his life every day to bring about a decent society, will not be President. The party that believes that it's perfectly cool to take a living baby from its mother's body and then pierce its skull with scissors and kill it while it screams will not be in charge of the Executive Branch (as they are of the media). Thank you, God. --Ben Stein

    Our rule should be the same for the nation as for the individual. Do not get into a fight if you can possibly avoid it. If you get in, see it through. Don’t hit if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting, but never hit soft. Don’t hit at all if you can help it; don’t hit a man if you can possibly avoid it; but if you do hit him, put him to sleep. --Theodore Roosevelt

    "You ask, what is our policy? I will say: it is to wage war, by sea, land and air, and with all our might. . . . You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: victory. . . . Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival!" -- Winston Churchill

    Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first. -- Mark Twain

    last but not least

    "Meaning no disrespect to the religious convictions of others, I still can't help wondering how we can explain away what to me is the greatest miracle of all and which is recorded in history. No one denies there was such a man, that he lived and that he was put to death by crucifixion. Where...is the miracle I spoke of? Well consider this and let your imagination translate the story into our own time -- possibly to your own hometown. A young man whose father is a carpenter grows up working in his father's shop. One day he puts down his tools and walks out of his father's shop. He starts preaching on street corners and in the nearby countryside, walking from place to place, preaching all the while, even though he is not an ordained minister. He never gets farther than an area perhaps 100 miles wide at the most. He does this for three years. Then he is arrested, tried and convicted. There is no court of appeal, so he is executed at age 33 along with two common thieves. Those in charge of his execution roll dice to see who gets his clothing -- the only possessions he has. His family cannot afford a burial place for him so he is interred in a borrowed tomb. End of story? No, this uneducated, propertyless young man who...left no written word has, for 2,000 years, had a greater effect on the world than all the rulers, kings, emperors; all the conquerors, generals and admirals; all the scholars, scientists and philosophers who have ever lived -- all of them put together. How do we explain that? ...[U]nless he really was what he said he was." --Ronald Reagan


    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

    If you don't understand weapons you don't understand fighting. If you don't understand fighting you don't understand war. If you don't understand war you don't understand history. If you don't understand history, you might as well live with your head in a sack. - Jeff Cooper

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

    If you hide your head in the sand and pretend nothing is wrong, when the lion comes along you'll get your butt eaten...(me)

    Winston Churchill rocks!!!

    "Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm."

    "However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results. "

    "History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it."

    "I have always felt that a politician is to be judged by the animosities he excites among his opponents."

    "I am prepared to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter. "

    "Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy. "

    "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."

    "You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life."

    "I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly. "
