from < http://www.enotes.com/famous-quotes/every-revolutionary-ends-by-becoming-either-an >. The successful revolutionary is a statesman, the unsuccessful one a criminal. - Erich Fromm . Every revolutionary ends by becoming either an oppressor or a heretic. - Albert Camus . The most radical revo…lutionary will become a conservative the day after the revolution. - Hannah Arendt . I must make the important distinction between the rebel and the revolutionary. One is in ineradicable opposition to the other. The revolutionary seeks an external political change.... The origin of the term is the word revolve, literally meaning a turnover, as the revolution of a wheel. When the conditions under a given government are insufferable some groups may seek to break down that government in the conviction that any new form cannot but be better. Many revolutions, however, simply substitute one kind of government for another, the second no better than the first-which leaves the individual citizen, who has had to endure the inevitable anarchy between the two, worse off than before. Revolution may do more harm than good. The rebel ... seeks above all an internal change, a change in the attitudes, emotions, and outlook of the people to whom he is devoted. He often seems to be temperamentally unable to accept success and the ease it brings; he kicks against the pricks, and when one frontier is conquered, he soon becomes ill-at-ease and pushes on to the new frontier. He is drawn to the unquiet minds and spirits, for he shares their everlasting inability to accept stultifying control. - Rollo May . The rebel, unlike the revolutionary, does not attempt to undermine the social order as a whole. The rebel attacks the tyrant; the revolutionary attacks tyranny. I grant that there are rebels who regard all governments as tyrannical; nonetheless, it is abuses that they condemn, not power itself. Revolutionaries, on the other hand, are convinced that the evil does not lie in the excesses of the constituted order but in order itself. The difference, it seems to me, is considerable. - Octavio Paz . It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees! - Dolores Ibarruri (La Pasionaria) ( Full Answer )

The quote, "Old soldiers never die; they just fade away" was part of General Douglas MacArthur's farewell address to a joint session of Congress on April 19, 1951, after President Truman fired him for ignoring orders about threatening China. The sentimental quote belies the seriousness of MacArthur'…s warning about and insight into the dangers of post-World War II Asia, particularly the Korean War and eventual "military action" in Vietnam. [Another contributor adds: "According to General of the Army (5 star) Douglas McArthur, the line came from an old Barracks Ballad sung during his young cadet tenure at West Point (Military Academy). He mentioned the ballad during his final address to the Corps of Cadets on his final departure from the Army I believe somewhere around 1962."] The full quote from the end of his address was: " I am closing my 52 years of military service. When I joined the Army, even before the turn of the century, it was the fulfillment of all of my boyish hopes and dreams. The world has turned over many times since I took the oath on the plain at West Point, and the hopes and dreams have long since vanished, but I still remember the refrain of one of the most popular barrack ballads of that day which proclaimed most proudly that "old soldiers never die; they just fade away." "And like the old soldier of that ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away, an old soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the light to see that duty. "Good Bye."

Originally the salute was not a salute but when Medieval Knights happened to cross paths they would raise the visor of their helmets in order to be identified. This developed into the hand salute. Also the sword salute is a derivative of the ancient knights in which the knight would kiss the cross-m…ember of the sword before going into battle. The following explanation of the origin of the hand salute is perhaps closest to the truth: It was an established military custom for juniors to remove their headgear in the presence of superiors. In the British Army as late as the American Revolution a soldier saluted by removing his hat. But with the advent of more cumbersome headgear in the 18th and 19th centuries, the act of a gentleman removing his hat was gradually converted into the simpler gesture of grasping the visor, and issuing a courteous salutation. From there it finally became conventionalized into something resembling our modern hand salute. As early as 1745 (more than 250 years ago) a British order book states that: "The men are ordered not to pull off their hats when they pass an officer, or to speak to them, but only to clap up their hands to their hats and bow as they pass."

Here are some good Andrew Jackson quotes that have stood the testof time, and are considered historic. "All the rights secured to the citizens under the Constitution areworth nothing, and a mere bubble, except guaranteed to them by anindependent and virtuous Judiciary." "One man with courage makes… a majority." "Americans are not a perfect people, but we are called to a perfectmission. " "Any man worth his salt will stick up for what he believes right,but it takes a slightly better man to acknowledge instantly andwithout reservation that he is in error. " "As long as our government is administered for the good of thepeople, and is regulated by their will; as long as it secures to usthe rights of persons and of property, liberty of conscience and ofthe press, it will be worth defending. " "Democracy shows not only its power in reforming governments, butin regenerating a race of men and this is the greatest blessing offree governments. " According to popular myth, Jackson was supposed to have said, "JohnMarshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it!" In PaulBoller's book, They Never Said It: A Book of False Quotes,Misquotes, & False Attributions , historian Robert V. Reminiclaims Jackson never made such a statement. The tale is based onsomething Jackson wrote in a letter to John Coffee, "...thedecision of the Supreme Court has fell still born, and they findthat they cannot coerce Georgia to yield to its mandate," meaning the Court's opinion was moot because it had no power toenforce its edict (not being a legislative body).

I am not bothered by the fact that I am unknown. I am bothered when I do not know others. To study and not think is a waste. To think and not study is dangerous. Listen widely to remove your doubts and be careful when speaking about the rest and your mistakes will be few. If you see what is… right and fail to act on it, you lack courage. When you meet someone better than yourself, turn your thoughts to becoming his equal. When you meet someone not as good as you are, look within and examine your own self. The superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions. They who know the truth are not equal to those who love it, and they who love it are not equal to those who delight in it. What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others. ( Full Answer )
