With tomorrow being the 148th anniversary of the General's passing, my mind wandered back to this thread. Here's another of my favorite quotes from one of the greatest Americans to ever live.

"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."
[R.E. Lee, in a letter to his daughter Mildred, dated for Dec. 21, 1866]

"The painful discipline they are undergoing, is necessary for their instruction as a race, & I hope will prepare & lead them to better things. How long their subjugation may be necessary is known & ordered by a wise Merciful Providence.”

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