Edmund Burke

"In the weakness of one kind of authority, and in the fluctuation of all, the officers of an army will remain for some time mutinous and full of faction, until some popular general, who understands the art of conciliating the soldiery, and who possesses the true spirit of command, shall draw the eyes of all men upon himself. Armies will obey him on his personal account. There is no other way of securing military obedience in this state of things." Edmund Burke

William Shakespeare

The fact is obvious. The might is in the hundred men who obey. The right (or what is held to be right) is in the one man who commands them." Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

"No profession or occupation is more pleasing than the military; a profession or exercise both noble in execution (for the strongest, most generous and proudest of all virtues is true valor) and noble in its cause. No utility either more just or universal than the protection of the repose or defense of the greatness of one's country. The company and daily conversation of so many noble, young and active men cannot but be well-pleasing to you." Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

Henry David Thoreau
