Tell us a favorite quote.
A favorite quote from perhaps my favorite person in American history: "My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me. That is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave." -Confederate General Jonathan Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson
