Famous quotes containing the words fire and/or enemy:

    Boys, when you see the enemy, fire and then run, and as I am a little lame, I will run now.
    —For the State of Rhode Island, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    The enemy are no match for us in a fair fight.... The young men ... of the upper class are kind-hearted, good-natured fellows, who are unfit as possible for the business they are in. They have courage but no endurance, enterprise, or energy. The lower class are cowardly, cunning, and lazy. The height of their ambition is to shoot a Yankee from some place of safety.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
