Quote of the Day
I think a lot of people, including me, clammed up when a civilian asked about battle, about war. It was fashionable. One of the most impressive ways to tell your war story is to refuse to tell it, you know. Civilians would then have to imagine all kinds of deeds of derring-do.
Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work.
For me, when I was a kid, volunteering was the last thing I was thinking about. When I see kids doing it now, it amazes me.

I think all kids should take a little time out to volunteer.
I am still bowled over by this great young adult novel by David Levithan called 'Every Day,' which is about a character with no gender or body who wakes up every day in the body of a different person. It's a really impressive execution of a really great premise.

Richard P. Feynman
There is no dignity quite so impressive, and no one independence quite so important, as living within your means.

I'm pretty rubbish, as we say in Britain, artwise, and I always envy people who can pick up something and even do just a little doodle of someone that looks vaguely like them. It's impressive.

Marching thus at night, a battalion is doubly impressive. The silent monster is full of restrained power; resolute in its onward sweep, impervious to danger, it looks a menacing engine of destruction, steady to its goal, and certain of its mission.
William Arthur Ward
