Robert E. Lee Quotes


A true man of honor feels humbled himself when he cannot help humbling others

Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more, you should never wish to do less.

Duty is the most sublime word in our language. Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more. You should never wish to do less.

Duty is the sublimest word in our language.

Duty is the sublimest word in the language. You can never do more than your duty. You should never wish to do less.

Get correct views of life, and learn to see the world in its true light. It will enable you to live pleasantly, to do good, and, when summoned away, to leave without regret.

I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself.

I have been up to see the Congress and they do not seem to be able to do anything except to eat peanuts and chew tobacco, while my army is starving.

I like whiskey. I always did, and that is why I never drink it.

I think it better to do right, even if we suffer in so doing, than to incur the reproach of our consciences and posterity.

I tremble for my country when I hear of confidence expressed in me. I know too well my weakness, that our only hope is in God.

In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength.

It is good that war is so horrible, or we might grow to like it.
It is well that war is so terrible. We should grow too fond of it.

Let the tent be struck.

Never do a wrong thing to make a friend or to keep one.

Obedience to lawful authority is the foundation of manly character.

The devil's name is dullness.

The education of a man is never completed until he dies.

The trite saying that honesty is the best policy has met with the just criticism that honesty is not policy. The real honest man is honest from conviction of what is right, not from policy.

The war... was an unnecessary condition of affairs, and might have been avoided if forebearance and wisdom had been practiced on both sides.

This war is not about slavery.

We failed, but in the good providence of God apparent failure often proves a blessing.

We have fought this fight as long, and as well as we know how. We have been defeated. For us as a Christian people, there is now but one course to pursue. We must accept the situation.

We must expect reverses, even defeats. They are sent to teach us wisdom and prudence, to call forth greater energies, and to prevent our falling into greater disasters.

What a cruel thing is war: to separate and destroy families and friends, and mar the purest joys and happiness God has granted us in this world; to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbors, and to devastate the fair face of this beautiful world.

What a cruel thing is war... to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbors, and to devastate the fair face of this beautiful world.

What a cruel thing war is... to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbors.
