Soldier On quotes by Anthony Doerr
#1. I found my first novel difficult. I don't want to make it sound like it's any more difficult than driving a cab or going to any other job, but there are so many opportunities for self-doubt, that you just kind of need to soldier on. #Quote by Anthony Doerr
Soldier On quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#2. Let us do our best whilst we live for another tomorrow is coming when whilst we are long gone, another group of people shall come to either suffer from our worst or enjoy and build upon our best. Let us run whole heatedly today with all alacrity for another generation shall come for the baton from our hands to either blame us or congratulate us on how we lived the dream and journeyed in life through the good and the bad times; another generation shall come to ponder over our footprints as a good or a bad lesson for them! Let us run with all necessary zeal such that when we hand over the baton, our next generation will have no reason but to soldier on with courage, enthusiasm and absolute commitment to get to the finishing line with a great accomplishment and a noble story worth pondering over and over! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Soldier On quotes by E.L. Doctorow
#3. Truth is, I just shrug and soldier on. As kind as I am, as well-meaning and helpful as I try to be, I have no feelings finally, for good or ill. In the depths of my being, no matter what happens, I am left cold, impenetrable to remorse, to grief, to happiness, though I can pretend well enough even to the point of fooling myself. I am trying to say I am finally, terribly, unfeeling. My soul resides in a still, deep, beautiful, emotionless, calm cold pond of silence. #Quote by E.L. Doctorow
Soldier On quotes by Stonewall Jackson
#4. The patriot volunteer, fighting for country and his rights, makes the most reliable soldier on earth. #Quote by Stonewall Jackson
Soldier On quotes by Meredith Maran
#5. My best time as a writer is any day, or any moment, when the work's going well and I'm completely absorbed in the task at hand. The hardest time is when it's not, and I'm not. The latter tend to outnumber the former. But I'm a persistent little cuss. And I soldier on. #Quote by Meredith Maran
Soldier On quotes by Philip French
#6. In "The Myth of Sisyphus", his most important non-fiction work, Albert Camus suggested that if we believed what most people claim to be the purpose of life, we would feel compelled to commit suicide. If, however, we accept that life has no purpose we would be inclined to soldier on in a cussed, stoical manner like Sisyphus, endlessly pushing his rock up a hill only to see it roll down again. #Quote by Philip French
Soldier On quotes by Mary Doria Russell
#7. Until you get the measure of your own soul, Jim, don't be quick to condemn a priest, or anyone else for that matter. I'm not scolding you, sweetheart," she said hurriedly. "It's just that, until you've been there, you can't know what it's like to hold yourself to promises you made in good faith a long time ago. Do you hang in there, or cut your losses? Soldier on, or admit defeat and try to make the best of things?" She'd looked a little sheepish then and admitted, "You know, I used to be a real hardass about stuff like this. No retreat, no surrender! But now? Jimmy, I honestly don't know if the world would be better or worse if we all held ourselves to the vows of our youth. #Quote by Mary Doria Russell
Soldier On quotes by J. H. Williams III
#8. I will soldier on. #Quote by J. H. Williams III
Soldier On quotes by Lauren DeStefano
#9. She's been conned, ruined, left for dead, and she's not going to forgive any of it. She will soldier on, if only out of spite. #Quote by Lauren DeStefano
Soldier On quotes by Agona Apell
#10. I rebuke societies that impart to their flowers their cold and rigid demeanour. Flowers should not stand with the stiffness of a soldier on parade but must carry themselves with the relaxedness of a dancer, their arms outstretched above a shaggy mane. Life reveals few sights as distressing as the look of flowers standing mournfully at attention unstirred by the kisses of a million bees. This infection of uncomely reserve is the handiwork of sombre gardeners bred in sombre societies who will not consider their work done till their flowers exude in aspect that stiffness they esteem. They forget that God intended that we mingle with flowers and not merely admire them from afar. But there is a look in a fastidiously manicured garden that makes me keep my distance, a look that draws my eyes but scorns my touch, and that is why I condemn them. #Quote by Agona Apell
Soldier On quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#11. Do the people in this country approve of this war?" [...].
"Approve? You don't think we'd lie down and let the damned Thuvians walk all over us? Our status as a world power is at stake!"
"But I mean the people, not the government. The... the people who must fight."
"What's it to them? They're used to mass conscriptions. It's what they're for, my dear fellow! To fight for their country. And let me tell you, there's no better soldier on earth than the Ioti man of the ranks, once he's broken in to taking orders. In peacetime he may spout sentimental pacifism, but the grit's there, underneath. The common soldier hs always been our greatest resource as a nation. It's how we became the leader we are."
"By climbing up on a pile of dead children?" [...].
"No,"[...] "you'll find the soul of the people true as steel, when the country's threatened. A few rabble-rousers in Nio and the mill towns make a big noise between wars, but it's grand to see how people close ranks when the flag's in danger. You're unwilling to believe that, I know. The trouble with Odonianism, [...], is that it's womanish. It simply doesn't include the virile side of life. 'Blood and steel, battle's brightness,' as the old poet says. It doesn't understand courage--love of the flag."
[...] "That may be true, in part. At least, we have no flags. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Soldier On quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#12. Love is a reliable soldier on the war on hate. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Soldier On quotes by Amanda Palmer
#13. The perception that vulnerability is weakness is the most widely accepted myth about vulnerability and the most dangerous. When we spend our lives pushing away and protecting ourselves from feeling vulnerable or from being perceived as too emotional, we feel contempt when others are less capable or willing to mask feelings, suck it up, and soldier on. We've come to the point where, rather than respecting and appreciating the courage and daring behind vulnerability, we let our fear and discomfort become judgment and criticism. #Quote by Amanda Palmer
Soldier On quotes by Lauren Kate
#14. This is why angels choose sides, why people join teams. It costs too much not to; it weighs too heavily to soldier on alone. #Quote by Lauren Kate
Soldier On quotes by Anni Taylor
#15. Sometimes it seemed like I was the one expected to soldier on while everyone else had a licence to fall apart. #Quote by Anni Taylor
Soldier On quotes by Robert Clear
#16. Whenever Elliot Norther's wife was nervous she baked. With the murder of Harriet Mason, her husband's close colleague at the Faculty, she had been unable to resist a couple of Victoria sponges. During the frenzied press speculation about the identity of the murderer, a Dundee cake had appeared, followed swiftly by a Battenberg and a Lemon Drizzle. Since news of the Wildencrust murder broke, the kitchen, dining room and study had come to resemble the storerooms of an industrial bakery, every surface heaving with the weight of sponge and cream. Yesterday, having at last been overwhelmed by the fear and rumour that swept the town, she had taken herself off to her mother's house in Hampstead, leaving her husband to soldier on alone. When he had last seen his wife, Elliot Norther noticed that she had been putting the finishing touches to an impressive, triple-tiered wedding cake, beating a batch of royal icing into a sickly paste. #Quote by Robert Clear
Soldier On quotes by Naoki Higashida
#17. But I ask you, those of you who are with us all day, not to stress yourselves out because of us. When you do this, it feels as if you're denying any value at all that our lives may have
and that saps the spirit we need to soldier on. The hardest ordeal for us is the idea that we are causing grief for other people. We can put up with our own hardships okay, but the thought that our lives are the source of other people's unhappiness, that's plain unbearable. #Quote by Naoki Higashida
Soldier On quotes by Kim Meeder
#18. To step inside a sealed, twelve-by-twelve-foot space with a wild animal that is many times your size is extremely hazardous to say the least. Yet sending these frightened animals out into the real world without giving them tools to safely deal with a new environment...could be disastrous. It would not be unlike sending a soldier on a mission without any training. Clearly, it was not a scenario lending itself toward safety or success for either horse or new owner. #Quote by Kim Meeder
Soldier On quotes by Sydney Logan
#19. For every amazing thing that happens to us, there are other crappy things just waiting to knock the smiles off our faces. But we keep smiling. We soldier on. #Quote by Sydney Logan
Soldier On quotes by Stephane Audeguy
#20. One dead body required two men either to bury it or to transport it to the rear. A wounded soldier, on the other hand, immobilized five men for an indeterminate amount of time; and who knew whether it was even worth the effort. #Quote by Stephane Audeguy
Soldier On quotes by Edward Abbey
#21. The children are innocent until proven guilty. For their sake, not ours, we must soldier on, muddling our way toward frugality, simplicity, liberty, community, until some kind of sane and rational balance is achieved between our ability to love and our cockeyed ambition to conquer and dominate everything in sight. No wonder the galaxies recede from us in every direction, fleeing at velocities that approach the speed of light. They are frightened. We humans are the Terror of the Universe. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Soldier On quotes by Selma Dabbagh
#22. Soldier on guard says they've identified "someone on two legs a hundred metres from the outpost". The other soldier, in the lookout, says "A girl about ten," but by then they're already shooting. Girl's dead[ ... ]The point is this use of code, on two legs, denoting human. It reminded me of that speech by their Prime Minister saying that we were beasts walking on two legs [ ... ]The idea that having legs makes you human. I thought of adding a Primo Levi-ish dimension to it. Merging this two-legged idea with a sort of general question about what is a man, you know, linking it to "if this is a man who labours in the mud/ who knows no peace/ who fights for a crust of bread?" [ ... ] my thesis being that the occupation, the closures, the siege have made amputees of all of us, crawling around in the mud. Legless in Gaza. The lot of us. #Quote by Selma Dabbagh
Soldier On quotes by Ruth Ozeki
#23. Le mal de vivre, 'the pain of life.' Qu'll faut bien vivre ... 'that we must live with, or endure.' Vaille que vivre, this is difficult but it is something like 'we must live the life we have. We must soldier on. #Quote by Ruth Ozeki
Soldier On quotes by Erno Paasilinna
#24. Every soldier is an enemy. #Quote by Erno Paasilinna
Soldier On quotes by Martin Luther
#25. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved. #Quote by Martin Luther
Soldier On quotes by Jack London
#26. A good soldier is a blind, heartless, soulless, murderous machine. He is not a man. His is not a brute, for brutes kill only in self defense. All that is human in him, all that is divine in him, all that constitutes the man has been sworn away when he took the enlistment roll. His mind, his conscience, aye, his very soul, are in the keeping of his officer. No man can fall lower than a soldier-it is a depth beneath which we cannot go. #Quote by Jack London
Soldier On quotes by Roshani Chokshi
#27. He didn't even bother rising to his feet after he'd rolled out of his chair. Instead he sat up, leaned forward and steepled his fingers. His fingers were long and slim, tapered and clean. He had the fingers of a scholar. Not a soldier.
"This is quite possibly the most exciting meeting I've ever had. Do continue. #Quote by Roshani Chokshi
Soldier On quotes by Stendhal
#28. I used to think of deathlike I suppose soldiers think of it: it was a possible thing that I could well avoid by my skill. #Quote by Stendhal
Soldier On quotes by Sarah Vowell
#29. Steuben explained to his friend, "You say to your soldier, 'Do this,' and he does it; but I am obliged to say, 'This is the reason why you ought to do that,' and then he does it. #Quote by Sarah Vowell
Soldier On quotes by Tom Waits
#30. It seems a stray bullet actually pierced the testicle of a Union soldier and lodged itself in the ovaries of a woman standing approximately 100 ft. away. She's alright, the baby's doing fine ... ofcourse the soldier's a little pissed off ... #Quote by Tom Waits
Soldier On quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#31. Our civilized world is nothing but a great masquerade. You encounter knights, parsons, soldiers, doctors, lawyers, priests, philosophers and a thousand more: but they are not what they appear - they are merely masks ... Usually, as I say, there is nothing but industrialists, businessmen and speculators concealed behind all these masks. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Soldier On quotes by Tilda Swinton
#32. I live a soldier's life when I'm working. That's how it feels to me, except I've got a slightly greater chance of survival. #Quote by Tilda Swinton
Soldier On quotes by Richard A. Kidd
#33. Readiness is the best way of truly taking care of soldiers. #Quote by Richard A. Kidd
Soldier On quotes by Anand Gopal
#34. Seen through the eyes of a U.S. soldier, Afghanistan is a scary place. #Quote by Anand Gopal
Soldier On quotes by Clara Barton
#35. While soldiers can stand and fight.I can fight and feed them #Quote by Clara Barton
Soldier On quotes by Daniel O'Connell
#36. No man was ever a good soldier but the man who goes into the battle determined to conquer, or not to come back from the battle field (cheers). No other principle makes a good soldier. #Quote by Daniel O'Connell
Soldier On quotes by Wilhelm Keitel
#37. I believe German soldiers are good and decent, and if they did anything wrong it was because of military necessity. #Quote by Wilhelm Keitel
Soldier On quotes by Fred Armisen
#38. I don't miss anything ever. Because to me, missing something is like going backward a little bit. I don't miss being in a punk band. For me, 'SNL' is like ... this is gonna sound overly dramatic, but ... the way I am, it feels like I'm a soldier, so it was like, 'What do you want me to do? Put me anywhere. Do you want me to do these sketches? Great.' #Quote by Fred Armisen
Soldier On quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#39. I think with the Romans, that the general of today should be a soldier tomorrow if necessary. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Soldier On quotes by Chinua Achebe
#40. Stories. One of them went regularly to a market in the neighboring village and helped himself to whatever he liked. He went in full uniform, breaking the earth with his boots, and no one dared touch him. It was said that if you touched a soldier, Government #Quote by Chinua Achebe
Soldier On quotes by Daniel Pipes
#41. To me, every fundamentalist Muslim, no matter how peaceable in his own behavior, is part of a murderous movement and is thus, in some fashion, a foot soldier in the war that bin Laden has launched against civilization. #Quote by Daniel Pipes
Soldier On quotes by George Armstrong Custer
#42. I appeal to you as a soldier to spare me the humiliation of seeing my regiment march to meet the enemy and I not share its dangers. #Quote by George Armstrong Custer
Soldier On quotes by Sebastian Junger
#43. At 19, your brain hasn't finished wiring itself. So the first time you have a good friend die, most people don't go through that at 19. Soldiers do. They're facing life in this accelerated, compressed form, and a lot of times, they're not ready for it. #Quote by Sebastian Junger
Soldier On quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#44. This night the password was silence, and the soldier at the gate responded with silence to Cincinnatus' silence and let him pass; likewise at all the other gates. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Soldier On quotes by Marcus Luttrell
#45. These are the problems of the modern U.S. combat soldier, the constant worry about overstepping the mark and an American media that delights in trying to knock us down. Which we have done nothing to deserve. Except, perhaps, love our country and everything it stands for. #Quote by Marcus Luttrell
Soldier On quotes by James Rollins
#46. A soldier picked up the still-living girl and carried her to the barren fireplace. #Quote by James Rollins
Soldier On quotes by Robert E.      Lee
#47. Why, sir, in the beginning we appointed all our worst generals to command the armies, and all our best generals to edit the newspapers. As you know, I have planned some campaigns and quite a number of battles. I have given the work all the care and thought I could, and sometimes, when my plans were completed, as far as I could see, they seemed to be perfect. But when I have fought them through, I have discovered defects and occasionally wondered I did not see some of the defects in advance. When it was all over, I found by reading a newspaper that these best editor generals saw all the defects plainly from the start. Unfortunately, they did not communicate their knowledge to me until it was too late." Then, after a pause, he added, with a beautiful, grave expression I can never forget: "I have no ambition but to serve the Confederacy, and do all I can to win our independence. I an willing to serve in any capacity to which the authorities may assign me. I have done the best I could in the field, and have not succeeded as I could wish. I am willing to yield my place to these best generals, and I will do my best for the cause in editing a newspaper."

In the same strain he once remarked to one of his generals: "Even as poor a soldier as I am can generally discover mistakes after it is all over. But if I could only induce these wise gentlemen who see them so clearly beforehand to communicate with me in advance, instead of waiting until the evil has come upon us, to let #Quote by Robert E. Lee
Soldier On quotes by Errico Malatesta
#48. In all times and in all places, whatever may be the name that the government takes, whatever has been its origin, or its organization, its essential function is always that of oppressing and exploiting the masses, and of defending the oppressors and exploiters. Its principal characteristic and indispensable instruments are the bailiff and the tax collector, the soldier and the prison. And to these are necessarily added the time-serving priest or teacher, as the case may be, supported and protected by the government, to render the spirit of the people servile and make them docile under the yoke. #Quote by Errico Malatesta
Soldier On quotes by Rajneesh
#49. This whole society, up to now, has been very violent with the individual. It does not believe in the individual; it is against the individual. It tries in every possible way to destroy you for its own purposes. It needs clerks, it needs stationmasters, deputy-collectors, policemen, magistrates, it needs soldiers. It does not need human beings. #Quote by Rajneesh
Soldier On quotes by Ann Coulter
#50. By 1973, John Kerry had already accused American soldiers of committing war crimes in Vietnam, thrown someone else's medals to the ground in an anti-war demonstration, and married his first heiress. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Soldier On quotes by Alexandra Ripley
#51. Johnny Reb' laughed. 'What's it to a soldier the right and the wrong of it all? He's there for the fighting, that's what he likes. Doesn't matter who you're fighting, long as he gives you a good fight. #Quote by Alexandra Ripley
Soldier On quotes by Antony Beevor
#52. There are one or two very good women military historians who use imagination, great study and research; they can put themselves in the boots of the soldier. #Quote by Antony Beevor
Soldier On quotes by Emery Lord
#53. Like a wounded soldier
Trudging the old road home,
But I ain't the old me,
And I walk this path alone.
I'm battle-worn, I'm battle-torn
With these scars inside my chest,
Kept up that happy face for you,
To hide that I'm a mess.

But I gave you every ounce of fight in me,
And I have no regrets.
If I was going to lose you,
At least I lost you to my best.
But it felt so wrong,
So tangled up in blue,
Like that old Dylan song,
Like I don't know who I am,
Now that you're gone.

But I lived through the pain.
Now I see the other side.
Now I know that life's too short
To shut myself down and hide.
I'm battle-torn, but I'm battle-born.
These scars are part of me.
I got nothing left but what I've learned,
And I'll use that, and you'll see,

I can still give every ounce of fight in me,
Till I have no regrets,
Because if I'm going to lose someone,
I'm gonna lose her to my best.
And I'll be strong,
When a hard rain's a-gonna fall,
Like that old Dylan song,
You're the reason I stand tall,
And that will never be gone. #Quote by Emery Lord
Soldier On quotes by Timothy Zahn, Star Wars: Thrawn
#54. The soldier in the field and the crew member aboard a warship inevitably see a war from a limited perspective. Their goal is to carry out their mission or their appointed task, and trust that their commanders are aware of the larger situation and the vast matrix of facts, positions, options, and dangers. Leadership is a role and a task that should never be aspired to lightly. Neither should loyalty be given without reason. Even if the primary reason is nothing more than the soldier's oath and duty, a true leader will work to prove worthy of a deeper trust.
But leadership and loyalty are both two-bladed weapons. Each can be twisted from its intended purpose. The consequences are never pleasant. #Quote by Timothy Zahn, Star Wars: Thrawn
Soldier On quotes by Billy Bragg
#55. I've had songs written during the Falklands war, and during the first Gulf war I got letters from soldiers saying they were listening to these songs, like Island of no return. #Quote by Billy Bragg
Soldier On quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#56. An Emperor confides in national soldiers, not in mercenaries. #Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte
