Wars can be prevented just as surely as they can be provoked, and we who fail to prevent them, must share the guilt for the dead.
Omar N. Bradley
There are two barriers that often prevent communication between the young and their elders. The first is middle-aged forgetfulness of the fact that they themselves are no longer young. The second is youthful ignorance of the fact that the middle aged are still alive.

James E. Faust
What matters to me is that I do what I think is right and I see, I'm a numbers guy, that's my attitude.
