    1. You cannot allow any of your people to avoid the brutal facts. If they start living in a dream world, it's going to be bad.

    2. If in order to kill the enemy you have to kill an innocent, don't take the shot. Don't create more enemies than you take out by some immoral act.

    3. I don't lose any sleep at night over the potential for failure. I cannot even spell the word.

    4. Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    5. You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually it's quite fun to fight them, you know. It's a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people. I'll be right up there with you. I like brawling.

    6. I come in peace. I didn't bring artillery. But I'm pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you f* with me, I'll kill you all.

    7. The first time you blow someone away is not an insignificant event. That said, there are some *******s in the world that just need to be shot. There are hunters and there are victims. By your discipline, you will decide if you are a hunter or a victim.

    8. We've backed off in good faith to try and give you a chance to straighten this problem out. But I am going to beg with you for a minute. I'm going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years.

    9. There are some people who think you have to hate them in order to shoot them. I don't think you do. It's just business.

    10. Marines don't know how to spell the word defeat

    11. The most important six inches on the battlefield is between your ears.

    12. PowerPoint makes us stupid.

    13. In this age, I don't care how tactically or operationally brilliant you are, if you cannot create harmony-even vicious harmony-on the battlefield based on trust across service lines, across coalition and national lines, and across civilian/military lines, you need to go home, because your leadership is obsolete. We have got to have officers who can create harmony across all those lines.

    14. Find the enemy that wants to end this experiment (in American democracy) and kill every one of them until they're so sick of the killing that they leave us and our freedoms intact.

    15. Treachery has existed as long as there's been warfare, and there's always been a few people that you couldn't trust.

    16. A country that armed Stalin to defeat Hitler can certainly work alongside enemies of al-Qaida to defeat al-Qaida.

    17. Fight with a happy heart.

    18. You are part of the world's most feared and trusted force. Engage your brain before you engage your weapon.

    19. For the mission's sake, for our country's sake, and the sake of the men who carried the Division's colors in past battles - who fought for life and never lost their nerve - carry out your mission and keep your honor clean. Demonstrate to the world there is No Better Friend - No Worse Enemy than a US Marine.

    #4 & #6 are my personal favs!
