Whatever we have of this world in our hands, our care must be to keep it out of our hearts, lest it come between us and Christ.

Old age isn't so bad when you consider the alternative.
Maurice Chevalier (sp?)

My husband says this one all the time. He says you either get old or the alternative.

“A young man who does not have what it takes to perform military service is not likely to have what it takes to make a living. Today's military rejects include tomorrow's hard-core unemployed.” - John F. Kennedy

(This one came to mind today when we had three brand new arrivals from Tech School came to the Commander begging to be released, funny how they all decided the military wasn't for them right after they were told how soon they could be in Afghanistan or Iraq.)

Patriotism is not dying for one's country, it is living for one's contry. And for humanity. Perhaps that is not as romantic, but it's better.
