„You're a fortunate guy.
And you ought to be shouting, "How lucky am I!"“

—  Dr. Seuss, book Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?

Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? (1973)
Context: And suppose that you lived in that forest in France
Where the average young person just hasn't a chance
To escape from the perilous pants-eating plants!
But your pants are safe! You're a fortunate guy.
And you ought to be shouting, "How lucky am I!"

„You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually it's quite fun to fight them, you know. It's a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people. I'll be right up there with you. I like brawling.“

—  James Mattis 26th and current United States Secretary of Defense; United States Marine Corps general 1950
