George Patton

George Patton

A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow.

We herd sheep, we drive cattle, we lead people. Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.


Do not take counsel of your fears.

There is a time to take counsel of your fears, and there is a time to never listen to any fear.

Tired officers are always pessimistic.

Fatigue makes cowards of us all.

Courage is fear holding on a minute longer.


Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.

Be willing to make decisions. That's the most important quality in a good leader.


Pressure makes diamonds.


Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash.


Success is how high you bounce when you hit the bottom.


If everybody's thinking alike, somebody isn't thinking.
