Gurkha Army quotes by H.G.Wells
#2. we are dealing with a new kind of army altogether, no longer held together in the solidarity of a common citizenship. As that tie fails, the legions discover another in esprit de corps, in their common difference from and their common interest against the general community. They begin to develop a warmer interest in their personal leaders, who secure them pay and plunder. Before the Punic Wars it was the tendency of ambitious men in Rome to court the plebeians; after that time they began to court the legions. Comparison #Quote by H.G.Wells
Gurkha Army quotes by John Steinbeck
#3. Well, suppose there's a slight doubt that the boy should be in the army and we send him and he gets killed."
"I see. Is it responsibility or blame that bothers you?"
"I don't want blame."
"Sometimes responsibility is worse. It doesn't carry any pleasant egotism. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Gurkha Army quotes by George William Curtis
#4. Through all history, from the beginning, a noble army of martyrs have fought fiercely and fallen bravely for that unseen mistress, their country. So, through all history, to the end, as long as men believe in God that army must still march and fall, recruited only from the flower of mankind, cheered only by their own hope of humanity, strong only in the confidence of their cause. #Quote by George William Curtis
Gurkha Army quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#5. An English army led by an Irish general: that might be a match for a French army led by an Italian general. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Gurkha Army quotes by David Bellavia
#6. Evan stares at me.
I try to hug him. He takes a step back. I pause, my heart in my throat. I've got to reach out to him, let myself be vulnerable. I find the courage, but he backs up again.
"You can't go to Iraq anymore."
"I know."
He looks up at Deanna, then back to me. "Did you fight bad guys? You told me you weren't." His voice is suspicious, full of accusation. He doesn't trust me, and I don't blame him for that.
"No, Evan. I didn't fight bad guys."
I can't bring myself to tell him the complete truth. I want so desperately to go back into this fight. I miss it every day. I always felt I could change the world with a rifle in my hands and our flag on my shoulder.
"Did you get shot?" he looks me over, apparently searching for bullet wounds.
I grin a little. "No, Bud, I didn't get shot."
"People get shot in Iraq."
"Yes, they do."
It strikes me then that Evan for the first time has a grasp on the dangers that are faced over there. He's six now, and the world is coming into focus for him.
"People get shot, Daddy. They die. Bad guys kill them."
I think of Edward Iwan and Sean Sims.
"Yeah, I know they do, Evan. #Quote by David Bellavia
Gurkha Army quotes by Bill Maher
#7. New Rule: Americans must realize what makes NFL football so great: socialism. That's right, the NFL takes money from the rich teams and gives it to the poorer one...just like President Obama wants to do with his secret army of ACORN volunteers. Green Bay, Wisconsin, has a population of one hundred thousand. Yet this sleepy little town on the banks of the Fuck-if-I-know River has just as much of a chance of making it to the Super Bowl as the New York Jets--who next year need to just shut the hell up and play.

Now, me personally, I haven't watched a Super Bowl since 2004, when Janet Jackson's nipple popped out during halftime. and that split-second glimpse of an unrestrained black titty burned by eyes and offended me as a Christian. But I get it--who doesn't love the spectacle of juiced-up millionaires giving one another brain damage on a giant flatscreen TV with a picture so real it feels like Ben Roethlisberger is in your living room, grabbing your sister?

It's no surprise that some one hundred million Americans will watch the Super Bowl--that's forty million more than go to church on Christmas--suck on that, Jesus! It's also eighty-five million more than watched the last game of the World Series, and in that is an economic lesson for America. Because football is built on an economic model of fairness and opportunity, and baseball is built on a model where the rich almost always win and the poor usually have no chance. The World Series is like The Real H #Quote by Bill Maher
Gurkha Army quotes by Warren Olney
#8. To the army of common soldiers, who do the actual fighting, and risk mutilation and death, there is no reward except the consciousness of duty bravely performed. #Quote by Warren Olney
Gurkha Army quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#9. Life is an island in an ocean of solitude and seclusion.
Life is an island, rocks are its desires, trees its dreams, and flowers its loneliness, and it is in the middle of an ocean of solitude and seclusion.
Your life, my friend, is an island separated from all other islands and continents. Regardless of how many boats you send to other shores, you yourself are an island separated by its own pains,secluded its happiness and far away in its compassion and hidden in its secrets and mysteries.
I saw you, my friend, sitting upon a mound of gold, happy in your wealth and great in your riches and believing that a handful of gold is the secret chain that links the thoughts of the people with your own thoughts and links their feeling with your own.
I saw you as a great conqueror leading a conquering army toward the fortress, then destroying and capturing it.
On second glance I found beyond the wall of your treasures a heart trembling in its solitude and seclusion like the trembling of a thirsty man within a cage of gold and jewels, but without water.
I saw you, my friend, sitting on a throne of glory surrounded by people extolling your charity, enumerating your gifts, gazing upon you as if they were in the presence of a prophet lifting their souls up into the planets and stars. I saw you looking at them, contentment and strength upon your face, as if you were to them as the soul is to the body.
On the second look I saw your secluded self standing be #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Gurkha Army quotes by Sally Wister
#10. I feel in good spirits, though surrounded by an Army, the house full of officers, the yard alive with soldiers, - very peaceable sort of men, tho'. They eat like other folks, talk like them, and behave themselves with elegance; so I will not be afraid of them, that I won't. #Quote by Sally Wister
Gurkha Army quotes by Lynn Hersha
#11. More proof that Lynn is still meant to continue with the government programme occurred during the winter of 2000, when she was sitting at a cafeteria table at the area college. It was later in the afternoon when a few people congregated there with books spread out so they could study while drinking coffee or snacking. Many tables were empty, yet after Lynn had been sitting for a few moments, an elderly man sat down across from her.
The old man seemed familiar to Lynn, though, at first, she pretended to ignore him. He said nothing, just sat there as someone might when all the tables are filled and it is necessary to share space with a stranger. His presence made her uncomfortable, yet there was nothing specific that alerted her.
A short while later, Mac, the man who had been Lynn's handler in Mexico, came out of the shadows and stopped at the table. He was younger than the old man. His clothes were military casual, the type of garments that veteran students who have military experience might recognise, but not think unusual. He leaned over Lynn and kissed her gently on the forehead, spoke quietly to her, and then said 'Wake up, Sleeping Beauty.' Those were the code words that would start the cover programme of which she was still part. The words led to her being switched from the control of the old man, a researcher she now believes may have been part of Dr Ewen Cameron's staff before coming to the United States for the latter part of his career, to the younger man.< #Quote by Lynn Hersha
Gurkha Army quotes by Michael Shaara
#12. He remembered the night in Arlington when the news came: secession. He remembered a paneled wall and firelight. When we heard the news we went into mourning. But outside there was cheering in the streets, bonfires of joy. They had their war at last. But where was there ever any choice? The sight of fire against wood paneling, a bonfire seen far off at night through a window, soft and sparky glows always to remind him of that embedded night when he found that he had no choice. The war had come. He was a member of the army that would march against his home, his sons. He was not only to serve in it but actually to lead it, to make the plans and issue the orders to kill and burn and ruin. He could not do that. Each man would make his own decision, but Lee could not raise his hand against his own. And so what then? To stand by and watch, observer at the death? To do nothing? To wait until the war was over? And if so, from what vantage point and what distance? How far do you stand from the attack on your home, whatever the cause, so that you can bear it? It had nothing to do with causes; it was no longer a matter of vows.
When Virginia left the Union she bore his home away as surely as if she were a ship setting out to sea, and what was left behind on the shore was not his any more. So it was no cause and no country he fought for, no ideal and no justice. He fought for his people, for the children and the kin, and not even the land, because not even the land was worth the war #Quote by Michael Shaara
Gurkha Army quotes by Richard Lloyd Parry
#13. There may indeed have been an order from the top, but when the time came nothing so direct as an order would have been necessary. Everything had been laid so carefully in place, responsibility had already been dispersed across so many different departments, commands and individuals, that no words were necessary. Jakarta's silence was the command. In Timor, the army knew what to do and once the thing had started it gathered speed and power and continued until it had exhausted itself. This was the strangest and most fearful aspect of the violence in East Timor: that it could be so meticulous and methodical, and at the same time so completely out of control. #Quote by Richard Lloyd Parry
Gurkha Army quotes by Anthony Powell
#14. Esteem for the army - never in this country regarded, in the continental manner, as a popular expression of the national will - implies a kind of innocence. #Quote by Anthony Powell
Gurkha Army quotes by Camille Paglia
#15. For all the feminist jabber about women being victimized by fashion, it is men who most suffer from conventions of dress. Every day, a woman can choose from an army of personae, femme to butch, and can cut or curl her hair or adorn herself with a staggering variety of artistic aids. But despite the Sixties experiments in peacock dress, no man can rise in the corporate world today, outside the entertainment industry, with long hair or makeup or purple velvet suits. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Gurkha Army quotes by Isaac Rosenberg
#16. I never joined the army for patriotic reasons. #Quote by Isaac Rosenberg
Gurkha Army quotes by C.S. Lewis
#17. No man knows how bad he is till he has tried very hard to be good. A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is. After all, you find out the strength of the German army by fighting against it, not by giving in. You find out the strength of a wind by trying to walk against it, not by lying down. A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does not know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad people, in one sense, know very little about badness - they have lived a sheltered life by always giving in. We never find out the strength of the evil impulse inside us until we try to fight it: and Christ, because He was the only man who never yielded to temptation, is also the only man who knows to the full what temptation means - the only complete realist. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Gurkha Army quotes by Jonathan Ott
#18. While public school history courses in the United States stress the horrors of the German Nazi murder of 6 million Jews and Josef Stalin's pogroms against racial minorities and political dissidents in the Soviet Union, the facts that the U.S. Army's solution to the 'Indian Problem' was the prototype for the Nazi 'Final Solution' to the 'Jewish Problem' and that the North American Indian Reservation was the model for the twentieth century gulag and concentration camp, are conveniently overlooked. #Quote by Jonathan Ott
Gurkha Army quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#19. Many, Lorenzo, have held and still hold the opinion, that there is nothing which has less in common with another, and that is so dissimilar, as civilian life is from the military. Whence it is often observed, if anyone designs to avail himself of an enlistment in the army, that he soon changes, not only his clothes, but also his customs, his habits, his voice, and in the presence of any civilian custom, he goes to pieces; for I do not believe that any man can dress in civilian clothes who wants to be quick and ready for any violence; nor can that man have civilian customs and habits, who judges those customs to be effeminate and those habits not conducive to his actions; nor does it seem right to him to maintain his ordinary appearance and voice who, with his beard and cursing, wants to make other men afraid: which makes such an opinion in these times to be very true. But if they should consider the ancient institutions, they would not find matter more united, more in conformity, and which, of necessity, should be like to each other as much as these (civilian and military); for in all the arts that are established in a society for the sake of the common good of men, all those institutions created to (make people) live in fear of the laws and of God would be in vain, if their defense had not been provided for and which, if well arranged, will maintain not only these, but also those that are not well established. And so (on the contrary), good institutions without the help of t #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Gurkha Army quotes by Sun Tzu
#20. The quality of decision is like the well-timed swoop of a falcon which enables it to strike and destroy its victim. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Gurkha Army quotes by Daniel Ortega
#21. Of course, the kind of support that Cuba could give us was very limited when it came to building up our army, since they didn't manufacture armaments in the quantities that we required. So we turned to Algeria and the Soviet Union for support. #Quote by Daniel Ortega
Gurkha Army quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#22. To give you an idea of the size of the Earth, I will tell you that before the invention of electricity it was necessary to maintain, over the whole of six continents, a veritable army of 462, 511 lamplighters for the street lamps. Seen from a slight distance that would make a splendid spectacle. the movements of this army would be regulated like those of the ballet in the opera. First would come the turn of the lamplighters of New Zealand and Australia. Having set their lamps alight, these would go off to sleep. Next, the lamplighters of China and Siberia would enter for their steps in the dance, and then they too would be waved back into the wings. After that would come the turn of the lamplighters of Russia and the Indies; then those of Africa and Europe; then those of South America; then those of North America. And never would they make a mistake in the order of their entry upon the stage. It would be magnificent. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Gurkha Army quotes by Petra Kelly
#23. I appeal to women not to let themselves become corrupted by male power. Emancipation is something more than a 'ticket' to serve in the army. #Quote by Petra Kelly
Gurkha Army quotes by Tommy Lasorda
#24. I still remember the entire Boy Scout motto. I don't remember the serial number of my gun in the army. I don't remember the number of my locker in school. But I remember that Boy Scout code. #Quote by Tommy Lasorda
Gurkha Army quotes by Adolf Hitler
#25. It is over, the Reich walls have collapsed, my generals have betrayed me and my army refuses to fight, this is the herr Doernitz! I only hope you can turn this around. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Gurkha Army quotes by A.J.P. Taylor
#26. The great armies, accumulated to provide security and preserve the peace, carried the nations to war by their own weight. #Quote by A.J.P. Taylor
Gurkha Army quotes by Samuel Smiles
#27. Politeness goes far, yet costs nothing. #Quote by Samuel Smiles
Gurkha Army quotes by Kenneth Adelman
#28. I don't agree that you need an enormous number of American troops. Saddam's army is down to one-third than it was before, and I think it would be a cakewalk. #Quote by Kenneth Adelman
Gurkha Army quotes by Connie Willis
#29. I'm not studying the heroes who lead navies - and armies - and win wars. I'm studying ordinary people who you wouldn't expect to be heroic, but who, when there's a crisis, show extraordinary bravery and self-sacrifice. Like Jenna Geidel, who gave her life vaccinating people during the Pandemic. And the fishermen and retired boat owners and weekend sailors who rescued the British Army from Dunkirk. And Wells Crowther, the twenty-four-year-old equities trader who worked in the World Trade Center. When it was hit by terrorists, he could have gotten out, but instead he went back and saved ten people, and died. I'm going to observe six different sets of heroes in six different situations to try to determine what qualities they have in common. #Quote by Connie Willis
Gurkha Army quotes by Hideki Tojo
#30. On October 18, 1941, I suddenly received a mandate from His Majesty to form a new cabinet. This was completely unexpected, and when I was summoned to the Imperial Palace I thought I would be questioned on the army's point of view. #Quote by Hideki Tojo
Gurkha Army quotes by Tom Parker Bowles
#31. My father was often away with the army, or in London, but mum did a lot of the cooking. She never liked cakes - not baking. Meat. Fish. That's what she did. #Quote by Tom Parker Bowles
Gurkha Army quotes by Ahmad Shukeiri
#32. "We will coordinate efforts of the PLO with responsible authorities in Jordan in all fields - politically, militarily and materially ... " "It was very probable that the Jordan army might start the battle." #Quote by Ahmad Shukeiri
Gurkha Army quotes by Kari Byron
#33. Does anybody find it creepy how many Grant robots have been on the show? Is it just me or he like trying to clone himself and make a little army? #Quote by Kari Byron
Gurkha Army quotes by Allan Nevins
#34. History is never above the melee. It is not allowed to be neutral, but forced to enlist in every army. #Quote by Allan Nevins
Gurkha Army quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#35. Active nonviolence of the brave puts to flight thieves, dacoits, murderers, and prepares an army of volunteers ready to sacrifice themselves in quelling riots, in extinguishing fires and feuds, and so on. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Gurkha Army quotes by Lord Byron
#36. Are we aware of our obligations to a mob? It is the mob that labor in your fields and serve in your houses - that man your navy, and recruit your army - that have enabled you to defy the world, and can also defy you when neglect and calamity have driven them to despair. You may call the people a mob; but do not forget that a mob too often speaks the sentiments of the people. #Quote by Lord Byron
Gurkha Army quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#37. There is not a single outward mark of courtesy that does not have a deep moral basis. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Gurkha Army quotes by Ayesha Jalal
#38. Except in Punjab and the NWFP, the central government's Kashmir policy had little support in Sindh or Balochistan and even less in East Bengal. Instead of serving the people, civil servants and their allies in the army hoisted the political leaders with their Kashmir petard to become the veritable masters of the manor through autocratic and unconstitutional means. #Quote by Ayesha Jalal
Gurkha Army quotes by Rudyard Kipling
#39. The 'eathen in 'is blindness must end where 'e began. But the backbone of the Army is the non-commissioned man! #Quote by Rudyard Kipling
Gurkha Army quotes by George Herbert
#40. Skill and confidence are an unconquered army. #Quote by George Herbert
Gurkha Army quotes by Cynthia Hand
#41. I don't know if
you know this about me, but I am a soldier.
Or the leader of God's army, but okay, let's be modest. #Quote by Cynthia Hand
Gurkha Army quotes by Edward Gibbon
#42. In the reign of the emperor Caracalla, an innumerable swarm of Suevi appeared on the banks of the Main, and in the neighbourhood of the Roman provinces, in quest either of food, of plunder, or of glory. The hasty army of volunteers gradually coalesced into a great and permanent nation, and, as it was composed from so many different tribes, assumed the name of Alemanni, or Allmen, to denote at once their various lineage and their common bravery.31 The latter was soon felt by the Romans in many a hostile inroad. The Alemanni fought chiefly on horseback; but their cavalry was rendered still more formidable by a mixture of light infantry selected from the bravest and most active of the youth, whom frequent exercise had enured to accompany the horsemen in the longest march, the most rapid charge, or the most precipitate retreat.32 #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Gurkha Army quotes by Jaroslav Hasek
#43. All along the line,' said the volunteer, pulling the blanket over him, 'everything in the army stinks of rottenness. Up till now the wide-eyed masses haven't woken up to it. With goggling eyes they let themselves be made into mincemeat and then when they're struck by a bullet they just whisper, "Mummy!" Heroes don't exist, only cattle for the slaughter and the butchers in the general staffs. But in the end every body will mutiny and there will be a fine shambles. Long live the army! Goodnight! #Quote by Jaroslav Hasek
