You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope as old as your despair. In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, so long are you young. When your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then, and then only, are you grown old. And then, indeed as the ballad says, you just fade away" ~ Douglas MacArthur

    "Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear - kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor - with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant funds demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real." ~ Douglas MacArthur 

    "By profession I am a soldier and take pride in that fact. But I am prouder - infinitely prouder - to be a father. A soldier destroys in order to build; the father only builds, never destroys.

    "I know war as few other men now living know it, and nothing to me is more revolting.

But once war is forced upon us, there is no other alternative than to apply every available means to bring it to a swift end." ~ Douglas MacArthur

Are we going to maintain our present course toward State Socialism with Communism just beyond or reverse the present trend and regain our hold upon our heritage of liberty and freedom?" ~ Douglas MacArthur

They are blind to history's clear lesson, for history teaches with unmistakable emphasis that appeasement but begets new and bloodier war.

Like blackmail, it lays the basis for new and successively greater demands until, as in blackmail, violence becomes the only other alternative." ~ Douglas MacArthur
