Famous Quotes From Military Leaders

“Lead me, follow me or get out of my way.”
-- General George S. Patton --

We’d like to welcome you to the Motivational and Inspirational Corner Newsletter. This month we’re going to focus our time together on the some famous inspirational quotes made by a number of America’s military leaders.

While we expect our military leaders to lead our armed forces and to instill a strong sense of discipline, honor and pride in their troops, it is truly enlightening to read some of their inspirational quotes on a variety of other subjects. These military leaders made it all the way to the top through their hard work, determination and commitment to excellence. They demanded the very best from their troops, but always returned it in turn.

Let’s start our selection of inspirational quotes made by military leaders with the man whose quote led off today’s Motivational and Inspirational Corner Newsletter, General George S. Patton.

Inspirational quotes by General George S. Patton:

“Do more than is required of you.”
“If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking.”
“Success is how you bounce at the bottom.”
“By perseverance, study and eternal desire, any man can become great.”
“You’re never beaten until you admit it.”
“Moral courage is the most valuable and usually the most absent characteristic in men.”

What is the common thread or threads that run throughout these motivational sayings? Certainly personal responsibility, courage and a staunch refusal to accept defeat are right there at the top of the list. Could incorporating these winning traits into our daily routine help accelerate our trek to the top? There’s no question about it.

Next on our list of quotes made by famous military leaders is General Norman Schwarzkopf.

Inspirational quotes by General Norman Schwarzkopf:

“The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it.”
“Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.”
“When placed in command, take charge.”
“It doesn’t take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle.”

Once again, courage, character and personal responsibility are emphasized in the above inspirational quotes by General Schwarzkopf.

Let’s now check out a few quotations made by George Washington.

Inspirational quotes by President George Washington:

“Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for ‘tis better to be alone than in bad company.”
“Labor to keep alive in your breast that little spark of celestial fire called conscience.”
“Few men have the virtue to withstand the high bidder.”

George Washington, in the above inspirational quotations, seems to be emphasizing the importance of nurturing a strong sense of integrity and self worth. Judging by these quotations, he strongly believed that every American should know what he or she stands for – and what he or she won’t stand for as well.

Colin Powell, who has admirably served America both in the military and as a Presidential Cabinet member, has made a number of truly inspirational quotes, including the following.

Inspirational quotes by Secretary of State Colin Powell:

“Have a vision. Be demanding.”
“Either move or be moved.”
“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, learning from failure.”
“Get mad, then get over it.”
“Leadership is solving problems.”

Vision, leadership, hard work and persistent determination – all winning attributes -- come to mind when reading these inspirational quotes made by Secretary Powell.

Here are a few more inspirational quotes made by other American military leaders.

Inspirational quotes by Theodore Roosevelt:

“The best leader is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.”
“Get action. Seize the moment. Man was never intended to become an oyster.”

Inspirational quotes by General Douglas MacArthur:

“In war, there is no substitute for victory.”
“A better world shall emerge based on faith and understanding.”

All of the inspirational quotes set excellent examples for all of us to follow. These men exhibited tremendous leadership qualities by committing were their lives to excellence. We too need to commit our lives to excellence in everything we say, think and do from this point forward. When we start looking for ways to make ourselves and the world around us better – we’ll start making history too.
