Most battles are won before they are ever fought.
Other George S. Patton quotes:
You need to overcome the tug of people against you as you reach for high goals.
You fight like you train.
Unless you do your best, the day will come when, tired and hungry, you will halt just short of the goal you were ordered to reach, and by halting you will make useless the efforts and deaths of thousands.
By perseverance, study, and eternal desire, any man can become great.
A pint of sweat will save a gallon of blood.
Be willing to make decisions. That's the most important quality in a good leader.
A man is not measured by how much he can take and stand but by how fast he regains once fallen.
Better to fight for something than live for nothing.
Fear kills more people than death.
Fatigue makes cowards of us all.
