Monica's Favorite Quotes
In tribute to all of our military servicemen and women, of wartime and of peacetime:

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
---John Stuart Mill

"But to the hero, when his sword
Has won the battle for the free,
Thy voice sounds like a prophet's word; And in its hollow tones are heard The thanks of millions yet to be."
----a verse by Fitz-Greene Halleck, American poet
