    “The hardship of the exercises is intended less to strengthen the back than to toughen the mind. The Spartans say that any army may win while it still has its legs under it; the real test comes when all strength is fled and men must produce victory on will alone.”
    ― Steven Pressfield, Gates of Fire

    "To be a good soldier you must love the army. But to be a good officer you must be willing to order the death of the thing you love. This is...a very hard thing to do. No other profession requires it. That is one reason why there are so very few good officers. Although there are many good men."

    Robert E. Lee

    "Government does not sponsor coffins for those who refuse to take up arms or for those on a hunger strike. So if you want one, make them yourself while you still have the strength." - Lieutenant Colonel Pärni when some men of his battalion went on hunger strike during continuation war.


    After this he gave the order to unload nails, board and tools in front of them.
