These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.
— Thomas Payne
The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.
— English writer G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936)
