Notations On Our World (Special Edition): On this #VeteransDay2021 Here in the United States



To All Veterans: Thank You For Your Service To Your Country.

Duty, Honor, Country.
Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be,
what you can be, what you will be.
- Douglas MacArthur

War settles nothing.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

The soldier above all others prays for peace,
for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the
deepest wounds and scars of war.
- Douglas MacArthur

Disarmament, with mutual honor and confidence,
is a continuing imperative.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

Pitiful is the person who is afraid of taking risks.
Perhaps this person will never be disappointed or disillusioned;
perhaps she won't suffer the way people do when they have a dream to follow.
But when the person looks back - and at some point everyone look back -
she will hear her heart, saying,
"What have you done with the miracles that God planted in your days?
What have you done with the talents God bestowed on you?"
- Paulo Coelho

If we take the generally accepted definition of bravery
as a quality which knows no fear, I have never seen a brave man.
All men are frightened. The more intelligent they are,
the more they are frightened.
- George S. Patton
