Quotable quotes

You gotta love the guy.

A few more excellent Mattis quotes here. I believe it was Grant who first expressed the underlying sentiment late in the Civil War, admonishing Sherman for worrying about what Lee might be planning to do by saying he was much more interested in forcing Lee to wonder what Grant might do to him instead.

  1. I do believe Mr. Grant was talking to his own staff with that quote, at a time when Sherman most assuredly was not available to be so educated, as he had some pressing business down south. And Sherman never struck me as being the overly cautious sort. Quite the opposite, as his Savannah venture would surely indicate.
