By

memorial day

                                        Enjoy your Memorial Day Holiday...

Here are a few quotes from  George Patton:

"Courage is fear holding on a minute longer."

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

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

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