"Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood."
"If we take the generally accepted definition of bravery as a quality which knows no fear I have never seen a brave man. All men are frightened. The more intelligent they are the more they are frightened."
"The time to take counsel of your fears is before you make an important battle decision. Thats the time to listen to every fear you can imagine! When you have collected all the facts and fears and made your decision turn off all your fears and go ahead!"
