Quotes The door that nobody else will go in at, seems always to swing open widely for me. I may be compelled to face danger, but never fear it, and while our soldiers can stand and fight, I can stand and feed and nurse them. The surest test of discipline is its absence. Everybody's business is nobody's business, and nobody's business is my business. "You must never so much as think whether you like it or not, whether it is bearable or not; you must never think of anything except the need, and how to meet it." 10.
