General Robert E. Lee quotes

General Robert E. Lee

General Robert E. Lee
The education of a man is never complete until he dies.

General Robert E. Lee
Never do a wrong thing to make a friend or to keep one.

General Robert E. Lee
I have been up to see the Congress and they do not seem to be able to do anything except to eat peanuts and chew tobacco, while my army is starving.

General Robert E. Lee
The devil's name is dullness.

General Robert E. Lee
My experiences of men has neither disposed me to think worse of them nor be indisposed to serve them: nor, in spite of failures which I lament, of errors which I now see and acknowledge, or the present aspect of affairs, do I despair of the future. The truth is this: The march of Providence is so slow and our desires so impatient the work of progress so immense and our means of aiding it so feeble the life of humanity is so long, that of the individual so brief, that we often see only the ebb of the advancing wave and are thus discouraged. It is history that teaches us to hope.

General Robert E. Lee
I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself.
