    "[N]o wall of words, [and] no mound of parchment can be so formed as to stand against the sweeping torrent of boundless ambition on the one side, aided by the sapping current of corrupted morals on the other."
    --George Washington (1789)

    "There is in most Americans some spark of idealism, which can be fanned into a flame. It takes sometimes a divining rod to find what it is; but when found, and that means often, when disclosed to the owners, the results are often extraordinary."
    --Louis Dembitz Brandeis, Whitney v. California [1927]

    "I selected an enormous Marine Corps emblem to be tattooed across my chest. It required several sittings and hurt me like the devil, but the finished product was worth the pain. I blazed triumphantly forth, a Marine from throat to waist. The emblem is still with me. Nothing on earth but skinning will remove it."
    --MajGen Smedley D. Butler

    "Any officer can get by on his sergeants. To be a sergeant you have to know your stuff. I'd rather be an outstanding sergeant than just another officer."
    --SgtMaj Daniel Daly 1873-1937

    "We will embrace you in uniform today, we will embrace you without uniform tomorrow."
    --Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels, 1919

    "If the bullets don't get you, life will."

    Semper Fi,
    "The United States Marine Corps is a drug and I am a recovering addict."

    This reminds me of Yogi Berra. " You don't know what you don't know till you know what you don't know." A Master Chief Quarter Master I really respected alway knew when I didn't know what I was doing.
    Good judgement comes from experience,
    and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.
    Mark Twain

      So true about sergeants. Remember having to take a 2nd Lt by the hand and lead him around. The good part was that he knew he shortcomings and accepted all the help we gave him. Turned out to be a good officer.
