                      QUOTE A DAY
       "Words That Inspire, Provoke and Entertain"
                 Tuesday Feb. 26, 2008
-----------------------------------------------------------

Greetings fellow quote lovers:

[This sent to me by a reader]

--------------
  As a history buff intrigued by the potential lessons of 
  the past, I recently stumbled on an interesting story 
  about General George S. Patton. An ardent believer, 
  Patton noted that in times of battle, his men all prayed, 
  but that when things quieted down, the praying stopped. 

  This disturbed him and, in a nutshell, led him to write 
  a "training letter" that was eventually distributed to 
  every unit under his command. It read, in part: 

  Those who pray do more for the world than those who fight;
  and if the world goes from bad to worse, it is because 
  there are more battles than prayers. Hands lifted up, 
  smash more battalions then hands that strike.  Urge all 
  of your men to pray, not alone in church, but everywhere. 
  Pray when driving.

  Pray when fighting. Pray alone. Pray with others. Pray by 
  night and pray by day. Pray for our Army, and pray for 
  peace. 

  We must march together, all out for God. The soldier who 
  'cracks up' does not need sympathy or comfort as much as 
  he needs strength and prayer.  We are not trying to make 
  the best of these days.  It is our job to make the most 
  of them. Now it  is not the time to follow God from 'afar 
  off.'  We need the assurance and the faith that God is 
  with us. 

  With prayer, we cannot fail.

  These words were written during the Battle of the Bulge, 
  when a sudden break in the weather handed the Allies an 
  unexpected victory over Hitler's forces. Patton, and 
  many others, attributed the outcome to prayer.

I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did!

 Best,

 JA
