Professional soldiers are predictable, but the world is full of amateurs.

No one ever carries too much ammo.

The one item you need is always in short supply.

I can make more generals, but horses cost money.

It's not the bullet with your name on it; it's the shrapnel addressed to ‘occupant’ you've got to worry about.

The easy way is always mined.

Density of fire increases proportionally to the curiousness of the target.

[When parachuting] it is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just bombed.

Any order that can be misunderstood has been misunderstood.

If the enemy is in range, so are you!

There is nothing more satisfying that having someone take a shot at you, and miss.

Whoever said the pen is mightier than the sword obviously never encountered automatic weapons!

Automatic weapons – aren’t.

If you take more than your fair share of objectives, you will have more than your fair share to take.
