PATTON"S TEN COMMANDMENTS

Do everything that you ask of those you command.
Say what you mean, and mean what you say.
Do not fear failure.
Do more than is required of you.
Do not take counsel of your fears.
Always go forward.
Take calculated risks.
Give credit where it is due.
Accept full responsibility for the actions of yourself        and your men.

"The educated man, particularly the educated leader, copes with the fact that life is not fair. The way to deal with failure is not to invent scapegoats or to lash out at followers."

A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.

“There are no self-proclaimed villains, only regiments of self-proclaimed saints. Victorious historians rule where good or evil lies. We abjure labels. We fight for money and an indefinable pride. The politics, the ethics, the moralities, are irrelevant. We confess the illusion and deny the substance.”
