Clergyman: "...The colonel's agent toured us around your quarters, General Patton, and I was interested to see a Bible by your bed! You actually find time to read it?" General George S. Patton Jr.: "I sure do... Every goddamn day..."
General George S. Patton Jr. (in response to being delayed by a snowstorm): "... Brave men dying up there... I'm not going to wait -- not an hour! Not a minute! ...We're going to keep moving... IS THAT CLEAR?!? We're going to attack all night! We're going to attack tomorrow morning! If we are not VICTORIOUS... let no one come back alive..."
General George S. Patton Jr. (reading a prayer he ordered from the army chaplain): "Almighty and most merciful Father... We humbly beseech Thee... of Thy great goodness... to restrain this immoderate weather with which we've had to contend... Grant us fair weather for battle. Graciously hearken to us, as soldiers who call upon Thee... that armed with Thy power, we may advance from victory to victory... and crush the oppression, and wickedness of our enemies... and establish Thy justice... among men, and nations... Amen..."
