Very good quote and thought by the Duke of Wellington.

However , a verse from a very old book just came to my head :

Those who are wise lament neither for the living nor for the dead.
Bhagavad Gita 2.11 (previous to a battle).

"All men feel a little diminished for NOT having been a SOLDIER".
I think that is true, I know I do,and I have NEVER been a soldier.
