Ten Military Quotes Which Every Defense Aspirant Must Know


Dear aspirants, often historic sayings by great personalities make us feel inspired and often bring about a great change in our life. As you know, an army officer is essential to know some ways and tactics to lead men under your command. Such tactics can often be found among the quotes of Sun Tzu. Anyway, I have collected some nice quotes for dear aspirants.

  1. If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle- Sun Tzu ( Art of War)
  2.  I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.- Alexander the Great
  3. .“Quartered in snow, silent to remain. When the bugle calls, they shall rise and march again.” – The scroll of honour at the Siachen base camp
  4. .There will be no withdrawal without written orders and these orders shall never be issued.”-Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw as Core Commander in 1962
  5. I wonder whether those of our political masters who have been put in charge of the defence of the country can distinguish a mortar from a motor; a gun from a howitzer; a guerrilla from a gorilla, although a great many resemble the latter.”-Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw
  6. You have never lived until, You have almost died, And for those who choose to fight, Life has a special flavor, The protected will never know!! -Capt R Subramanium Kirti Chakra (Posthumous)
  7. If death strikes before I prove my blood, I swear I’ll kill Death” – Capt Manoj Kumar Pandey PVC 1/11 Gorkha Rifles
  8. No Sir, I will not abandon my tank. My gun is still working and I will get these bastards.-2nd Lt. Arun Kehtarpal PVC, 1971
  9. The enemy are only 50 yards from us. We are heavily outnumbered. We are under devastating fire. I shall not withdraw an inch but will fight to our last man and our last round.”-Major Somnath Sharma
  10. 10.Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look on them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even until death- Sun Tzu

The quotes signify how an army officer is expected to behave even under the most difficult situations. The courage and presence of mind of Army officers are meant to be implemented by every defense aspirants.

Wish you all best of Luck, Jai Hind
