But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for, Is their monument to-day, and for aye.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.
Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul.
The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example.
And they who for their country die shall fill an honored grave, for glory lights the soldier's tomb, and beauty weeps the brave.
We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!
Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die.
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Our cheer goes back to them, the valiant dead! Laurels and roses on their graves to-day, lilies and laurels over them we lay, and violets o'er each unforgotten head.
Four things support the world: the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the good, and the valor of the brave

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.
This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.
The living owe it to those who no longer can speak to tell their story for them.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place, and in the sky, The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard among the guns below.
The most persistent sound which reverberates through man's history is the beating of war drums.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow.
I dream of giving birth to a child who will ask: "Mother, what was war?"
