„I never dwell on past mistakes… There is too much to plan for the future to waste time complaining.“

—  Cary Grant British-American film and stage actor 1904 - 1986
Context: I never dwell on past mistakes… There is too much to plan for the future to waste time complaining.  Elsie Mendl was a great friend of mine for many, many years. And I remember the creed by which she lived: Never complain, never explain. Just think of the people you know who are always explaining their mistakes. It merely rubs the whole thing in. You’re reminded again of the mistake. And no one believes the explanation anyway.

„The price of peace is eternal vigilance.“

—  George Marshall US military leader, Army Chief of Staff 1880 - 1959
Misattributed, This has been attributed to Marshall, and he might have used the phrase, but earlier uses exist: There is an imperialism that deserves all honor and respect — an imperialism of service in the discharge of great duties. But with too many it is the sense of domination and aggrandisement, the glorification of power. The price of peace is eternal vigilance. Leonard H. Courtney as quoted in The Life Of Lord Courtney (I920) by G. P. Gooch Courtney's statement however is probably derived from an earlier statement with several variants: The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. These have often been attributed to Thomas Jefferson, but also Thomas Paine, Abraham Lincoln, and many others; Alfred Denning in The Road to Justice (1988) states that the phrase originated in a statement of Irish orator John Philpot Curran in 1790: "It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance."
