" Everyone remain calm" - last words uttered by Montezuma emperor of the Aztecs before being killed by angry crowd after Spanish soldiers killed some Aztec nobles. Native sources say he was killed by the Spanish instead due to outliving his usefulness to control his people.

The Yankee general, John Sedgwick, warned to take cover from Confederate sharpshooters said, "Don't worry. At this range they couldn't hit an elepha---"

Two time CMH recipient Sgt. Major Daniel Daly (USMC) said, "C'mon you SOB's! You wanna live forever?!" He, however, was no general and outlived this battle by twenty years. Twice offered an officer's commission, he said he'd rather be an outstanding sergeant than just another officer.
