“Keep buggering on.” Winston Churchill


“The term ‘morale’ is never used except in reference to soldiers or people in analogous positions, such as employees of large corporatio­ns or prison inmates. No one ever talks about the morale of participan­ts in a passionate love affair.”

P.J. O’Rourke

“The greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositio­ns and not upon our circumstan­ces.”

Martha Washington

“About a third of my cases are suffering from no clinically definable neurosis, but from the senselessn­ess and emptiness of their lives. This can be defined as the general neurosis of our times.”

Carl Jung

“The best morale exists when you never hear the word mentioned. When you hear a lot of talk about it, it’s usually lousy.”

Dwight Eisenhower

“Phrases like ‘the team spirit’ are always employed to cut across individual­ism, love and personal loyalties.”

Muriel Spark

“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.”

Marcus Aurelius

“Morale is good; troops are confident; leaders are capable.”

John Abizaid

“My expectatio­ns were reduced to zero when I was 21. Everything since then has been a bonus.”

Stephen Hawking

“Military power wins battles, but spiritual power wins wars.”

George C. Marshall

“We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.”

Carlos Castaneda

“No soldier outlives a thousand chances. But every soldier believes in Chance and trusts his luck.”

Erich Maria Remarque

“Happiness in intelligen­t people is just about the rarest thing I know.”

Ernest Hemingway
