Norman Schwarzkopf
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
Schwarzkopf quotes
Do what is right, not what you think the high headquarters wants or what you think will make you look good.
As far as Saddam Hussein being a great military strategist: He is neither a strategist, nor is he schooled in the operational art, nor is he a tactician, nor is he a general, nor is he a soldier. Other than that, he's a great military man.

Schwarzkopf Norman Jr. quotes
A professional soldier understands that war means killing people, war means maiming people, war means families left without fathers and mothers. All you have to do is hold your first dying soldier in your arms, and have that terribly futile feeling that his life is flowing out and you canít do anything about it. Then you understand the horror of war.
Any soldier worth his salt should be antiwar. And still there are things worth fighting for.
Schwarzkopf Norman Jr.
When placed in command ó take charge.
Norman Schwarzkopf quotes
True courage is being afraid, and going ahead and doing your job.
