Douglas MacArthur (五星上將)


“Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their ideals. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.”

— Douglas MacArthur, General

「沒有人只因活很多年而變老,人們因放棄理想而變老。你如同你的信念般年輕,如你的疑慮般年老;如同你的自信般年輕,如你的恐懼般年老;如同你的希望般年輕,如你的絕望般年老。」– 道格拉斯‧麥克阿瑟 (五星上將)
