Norman Schwarzkopf (陸軍將領)


“Courage brother, do not stumble, though thy path be dark as night: There is a star to guide the humble, trust in God, and do the right. Let the road be dark and dreary and its end far out of sight. Face it bravely, strong or weary. Trust God, and do.”

— Norman Schwarzkopf, Army General

「拿出勇氣來兄弟,不要跌倒,雖然道路如同夜晚般漆黑:星星會為卑恭的人領路,信任上帝,做對的事。讓路程漆黑、乏味、看不到終點。勇敢面對它,無論堅強或疲倦。相信上帝,且行動。」– 諾曼‧施華蔻 (陸軍將領)
