Douglas MacArthur quotes

Build me a son, O Lord, who will be strong enough to know when he is weak, and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid, one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, and humble and gentle in victory.

Duty, Honor, Country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.

The world is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It's the age-old struggle: the roar of the crowd on the one side, and the voice of your conscience on the other.

There is no substitute for victory.

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.

The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.

Age wrinkles the body. Quitting wrinkles the soul.

We are not retreating - we are advancing in another direction.

It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear.

In my dreams I hear again the crash of guns, the rattle of musketry, the strange, mournful mutter of the battlefield.

Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear - kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor - with the cry of grave national emergency.

There is no security on this earth; there is only opportunity.

I've looked that old scoundrel death in the eye many times but this time I think he has me on the ropes.

It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.

A better world shall emerge based on faith and understanding.

Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.

Years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

In war there is no substitute for victory.

A general is just as good or just as bad as the troops under his command make him.

You are remembered for the rules you break.
