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."
