I have drawn inspiration from the Marine Corps, the Jewish struggle in Palestine and Israel, and the Irish.
— Leon Uris

Look, many of us here are regular marines... I will die as a marine because that is my dream.
Jerry Jones marine quote

Without discipline, there is no Marine Corp.
— R. Lee Ermey

So the Marine Corps really did teach me to conquer fear, and then to go for higher causes, higher purposes.
— Robert Kiyosaki

When the mariner has been tossed for many days in thick weather, and on an unknown sea, he naturally avails himself of the first pause in the storm, the earliest glance of the sun, to take his latitude, and ascertain how far the elements have driven him from his true course. Let us imitate this prudence, and, before we float farther on the waves of this debate, refer to the point from which we departed, that we may at least be able to conjecture where we now are.
— marine quotation by Daniel Webster
