Blood Quotations

The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life.
Richard Bach

Ray Charles

The great questions of the day will not be settled by means of speeches and majority decisions but by iron and blood.
Otto von Bismarck

William Tecumseh Sherman
