Sir Frederick Browning Quote
On the Arnhem "Market Garden" operation. To Field Marshal Montgomery on 10 September 1944.
“The East bow'd low before the blast, In patient, deep disdain. She let the legions thunder past, And plunged in thought again.”
As quoted in: The Living Age, Volume 105 (1870), p. 236, "From the Spectator: A Buddhist Matthew Arnold"
“A man of genius makes no mistakes; his errors are volitional and are the portals of discovery.”
“Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number —
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you —
Ye are many — they are few.”
―Percy Bysshe Shelley
