My favourite -

During the American Civil War there was, a one of the many of the battles, a lot of sporodic sniping going on from frontline troops. A Confederate General (I think) was watching this from a hill, his chief of staff (had to be a bloody chief didn't it) suggested that they were to far forward and were in risk of being shot (see what I mean about chiefs) to which this worthy replied

"nonsense they couldn't hit a thing at this dist............."

Well I like it - a sensible general!

That was Union General John Sedgewick. He was observing Confederate positions across the Rapahannock river, near Fredricksburg.
A reb sharpshooter got him.

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic" - Arthur C. Clarke: Technology and the Future


"We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battle-field, and patriot grave, to every living heart and hearthstone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature."
- Abraham Lincoln

"And each mind that I peered into was stuffed with the same single object of obsession. That selfish and atavistic desire to pass on one's seed... it was enough to make me sick. Every living thing on this planet exists to mindlessly pass on their DNA. We're designed that way. And that's why there is war. But you... you are different... You're the same as us. We have no past, no future. We live in the moment. That's our only purpose. Humans weren't designed to bring each other happiness. From the moment we're thrown into this world, we're fated to bring each other nothing but pain and misery." - Psycho Mantis (Dude that's my Avatar): Metal Gear Solid

'A person is clever and compassionate. People however, are ignorant, scared, petty and vindictive. Know the difference.'

Whilst on the American theme how's about

"Charlie don't surf!"

Go you know the movie - the one with helicopters and a bit of 'Ride of the valkyrie' Bloody marvellous!

you obviously have not grasped the gravity of the situation"
