Ask any Marine what his or her favorite USMC quote is, and they will tell you. There are dozens of quotes that glorify and/or pay homage to the United States Marine Corps, and the special men and women who have earned the right to wear that title.

Here are just a few of the quotes:

“Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don’t have that problem.”
― Ronald Reagan

“If I charge, follow me. If I retreat, kill me. If I die, revenge me.” 
― United States Marine Corps

“Your soul may belong to Jesus, but your ass belongs to the marines.” 
― Eugene B. Sledge, With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa

“Uncommon valor was a common virtue.”
― Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz
