Famous quotes containing the words army and/or reserve:

    That’s what an army is—a mob; they don’t fight with courage that’s born in them, but with courage that’s borrowed from their mass, and from their officers.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    We must reserve a back shop all our own, entirely free, in which to establish our real liberty and our principal retreat and solitude.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
