Quote shared with me this evening by a friend.

"The three most destructively misinterpreted documents of all time are the Bible, the U.S. Constitution, and the Official Rules of Golf"

I don't play golf, but I'll sure vouch for the validity of the assertion regarding the other two.
"The American military is like a finely crafted sword. To be effective, it must be wielded by a discerning, skilled and merciless hand."
