General George S. Patton

Until the movie PATTON, in 1970, General George S. Patton, was largely a forgotten hero. But he was a man who was at the forefront of every military action from the American expedition into Mexico after Pancho Villa in 1916 to the end of Second World War.  Ironically, he died because of a vehicle accident in December of 1945. He was also famous for his pitchy quotes including one which every writer, artist and actor should appreciate: “I don’t measure a man’s success by how high he climbs but how high he bounces when he hits bottom” Anyone with connections can be successful But the real test of success is what you accomplish on your own. There is no substitute for hard work because you make your own luck.
