Frederick Russell Burnham
Under the administration of Rhodes, there were the fewest laws, the widest freedom, the least crime, and the turest justice, that I have ever seen in any part of the world.
Burnham quotes
I am more afraid of an army of a hundred sheep led by a lion than an army of a hundred lions led by a sheep.
Burnham
As far as we can look back into history, the downfall of any nation can be traced from the moment that nation became timid about spending its best blood.




There is nothing that sharpens a man's senses so acutely as to know that bitter and determined enemies are in pursuit of him night and day.
