General George S. Patton Quotations

General George S. Patton, Jr., the most successful U.S. field commander of any war

“Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable”.

“Americans play to win at all times. I wouldn't give a hoot and hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost nor ever lose a war.”

“I don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but how high he bounces when he hits bottom.”

“Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory”.

“Better to fight for something than live for nothing.”

“If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.”
