Memorial Day Quotes Sayings

Decoration Day is the most beautiful of our national holidays…. The grim cannon have turned into palm branches, and the shell and shrapnel into peach blossoms.
~Thomas Bailey Aldrich

Better than honor and glory, and History’s iron pen,
Was the thought of duty done and the love of his fellow-men.
~Richard Watson Gilder

We who are left how shall we look again
Happily on the sun or feel the rain
Without remembering how they who went
Ungrudgingly and spent
Their lives for us loved, too, the sun and rain?
~Wilfred Wilson Gibson

A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.
~Joseph Campbell

Who kept the faith and fought the fight;
The glory theirs, the duty ours.
~Wallace Bruce

Our battle-fields, safe in the keeping
Of Nature’s kind, fostering care,
Are blooming, – our heroes are sleeping, –
And peace broods perennial there.
~John H. Jewett

Their silent wounds have speech
More eloquent than men;
Their tones can deeper reach
Than human voice or pen.
~William Woodman

Their own souls rose and cried
Alarum when they heard the sudden wail
Of stricken freedom and along the gale
Saw her eternal banner quivering wide.
~John LeGay Brereton

    All people as the same,
    And no one has to live in fear,
    In ignorance, or shame.
    Happy Memorial Day 2016!!
  • The American Hero always comes through
    To capture our hearts with a spirit so true
    Some proudly are soldiers who march in harm’s way
    Insuring our freedom, courageous they stay
    While others come forth as civilians so brave
    Determined in purpose, so steadfast to save
    We should always keep clear a place in our heart
    For each has a value beyond precious art….
    Happy Memorial Day 2016!!
