Other George S. Patton quotes:
You must be single-minded. Drive for the one thing on which you have decided.
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.
Always do more than is required of you.
Don't fall victim to what I call the ready-aim-aim-aim-aim syndrome. You must be willing to fire.
When there is fear of failure, there will be failure.
Better to fight for something than live for nothing.
You shouldn't underestimate an enemy, but it is just as fatal to overestimate him.
A man must know his destiny. If he does not recognize it, then he is lost.
If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.
Be willing to make decisions. That's the most important quality in a good leader.
