In the part which merely concerns himself, his independence is, of right, absolute. Over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

Surprised this one hasn't come up as it could be stamped one the head of the cartridges we handle every day.

" si vis paceum, para bellum"

When Georg Luger developed the 9x19 in 1902, he refused to follow the practice of naming it for the originator, instead quoting Plato, " to live in peace, prepare for war"

9mm parabellum.

"Train as you fight, for you will fight as you train"

I know not of its origin but am sure it has been the mantra of many a commander across the millennia.

When the guys bitch about drill they often get...

Los Angeles City Fire, Station 38, 1992.

The A/O on the ladder sat me down and laid this out...

"Do you want to save a life?"

"Yes!" I exclaimed

"If your brother goes down in a burning building will you want to get him out?"

"Hell yes!" I promised.

"If all that stands between life and death is you, are you committed?"

"Yes sir!" I shouted

"Then get up off your ass, carry that hose bundle up and down the tower till you vomit! Lift weights till your arms break, and PT until your eye sockets bleed! Wanting it is worthless without ability! Don't give me any sh!t about heart. YOU are worthless until your body can deliver on what your ego promises!"

His words haunt me to this day.
