    I've been trying to collect a few sayings and quotes related to self defense, training, military, etc.

    Here are a few of my fav's:

    "If you quit, you lose. If you lose, you die"***

    If you can talk about it, you won.***

    Pain is just weakness leaving the body

    Let’s Roll !!

    Pain is temporary, death is permanent.***

    "The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in the street."

    Are you gonna bark all day little doggie, or are you gonna bite?

    No more victims

    If you resemble food, you will be eaten! (Clint Smith) I think.

    "When the wolves can't tell the sheep from the lions, the whole flock is safer."***

    Always have a pilot light burning inside ready to explode when needed

    "Fights are NOT contests, they are about survival. Cheat, win, and go home alive." – Unknown

    Do or do not. There is no try. **

    ***"Better to be a tiger for a day than a sheep for a lifetime." ~ Chinese Proverb

    "Action always beats re-action."

    "Don’t hit at all, if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft."
    — Theodore Roosevelt

    "Just because I walk a different path than you doesn't mean I am lost"

    Anyone care to contribute more? I actually have a list of a few pages worth, but I'd like to keep it going.

    Who's first??

    check, double check and have some one else check your equipment, remeber it was made by the lowest bidder.

    if it aint broke, dont mess with it. but if it is then turn it in and get a new one.

    if you can hear the rounds going by then reload and keep shooting, the fight aint over yet.

    Life sucks, get a helmet.

    You don't have to like it, you just have to do it.

    A life without expectation is a life without disappointment.

    Eat it now, taste it later.

    And yes, that's just what we did. The "Slow Guys" were much more motivated the next day...:supergrin:

    I love collecting cool quotes to use as AIM away messages. Here's a few:

    Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.
    -- John F. Kennedy

    Laws are partly formed for the sake of good men, in order to instruct them how they may live on friendly terms with one another, and partly for the sake of those who refuse to be instructed, whose spirit cannot be subdued, or softened, or hindered from plunging into evil.


    The superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.

    -- Confucius, The Confucian Analects

    If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive citizen, a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, then you have defined an aggressive sociopath, a wolf. But what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? What do you have then? A sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the hero’s path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed.

    --David Grossman

    Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorius triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

    --Theodore Roosevelt

    "It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

    --Theodore Roosevelt

    I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life; I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well

    -Theodore Roosevelt

    "Let us speak courteously, deal fairly, and keep ourselves armed and ready."

    - Theodore Roosevelt.

    Train hard, fight easy.

    -- SWAT truism.

    When life is on the line, you will NOT rise to the occasion, you will DEFAULT to the level of your TRAINING.

    --SWAT truism.

    I work to live. I DON'T live to work
  16. some very good sayings here:thumbsup: :wavey:
  17. - If you're going to be stupid, you have to be tough.

    - In a society where values are present, laws are unnecessary; where values are absent, laws are unenforceable.
  18. Sweat more now, bleed less later!

    Pain is fear escaping the body!

    (this was a bumper sticker, but I liked it, although I am sure everyone has seen it)
    "Marines dont die, they go to hell to regroup!"

    Ignore that. Just saw that OP had same quotes! I will go back to bed now!

    Lead, follow, or get out of the way.

    Smile, be courteous, and have a plan to deal with everyone you see.

    Keep your powder dry. (oldie but a goodie)

    Get in, sit down, shut up and hold on.

    Giving a man a gun and saying he is armed is like giving a man a guitar and saying he is a musician-Col Jeff Cooper
