Robert E. Lee Quotes

Robert E. Lee Quotes


It is glorious to see such courage in one so young.


Live in the world you inhabit. Look upon things as they are. Take them as you find them. Make the best of them. Turn them to your advantage.

I tremble for my country when I hear of confidence expressed in me. I know too well my weakness that our only hope is in God.

I believe it to be the duty of everyone to unite in the restoration of the country and the reestablishment of peace and harmony.

Our country demands all our strength, all our energies. To resist the powerful combination now forming against us will require every man at his place. If victorious, we will have everything to hope for in the future. If defeated, nothing will be left for us to live for.

Never do a wrong thing to make a friend–or to keep one.

It is well that war is so terrible, or we should grow too fond of it.

They do not know what they say. If it came to a conflict of arms, the war will last at least four years. Northern politicians will not appreciate the determination and pluck of the South, and Southern politicians do not appreciate the numbers, resources, and patient perseverance of the North. Both sides forget that we are all Americans. I foresee that our country will pass through a terrible ordeal, a necessary expiation, perhaps, for our national sins.

I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself.

The education of a man is never completed until he dies.

Go home all you boys who fought with me and help build up the shattered fortunes of our old state

My trust is in the mercy and wisdom of a kind Providence, who ordereth all things for our good.

All motion is relative. Perhaps it is you who have moved away by standing still

I can not trust a man to control others who cannot control himself.

We made a great mistake in the beginning of our struggle, and I fear, in spite of all we can do, it will prove to be a fatal mistake. We appointed all our worst generals to command our armies, and all our best generals to edit the newspapers

It is easier to make our wishes conform to our means than to make our means conform to our wishes.

Duty is the sublimest work in the English language.

There is true glory and a true honor: the glory of duty done–the honor of the integrity of principle.

We must look to the rising generation for the restoration of the country.

We cannot afford to be idle, and though weaker than our opponents in men and military equipment, must endeavor to harass if we cannot destroy them.

The war… was an unnecessary condition of affairs, and might have been avoided if forbearance and wisdom had been practiced on both sides.

A Union that can only be maintained by swords and bayonets, and in which strife and civil war are to take the place of brotherly love and kindness, has no charm for me.

We must enlist our own snake and strike like a cobra against their vitals with an attack on Washington.

Death, in its silent sure march, is fast gathering those whom I have longest loved so that when he shall knock at my door, I will more willingly follow.

With all my devotion to the Union and the feeling of loyalty and duty of an American citizen, I have not been able to make up my mind to raise my hand against my relative, my children, my home. I have, therefore, resigned my commission in the Army…

I can anticipate no greater calamity for the country than the dissolution of the Union. It would be an accumulation of all the evils we complain of, and I am willing to sacrifice everything but honor for its preservation.

We must…submit ourselves in adversity to the will of a merciful God as cheerfully as in prosperity.

I am as willing to serve now as in the beginning in any capacity and at any post where I can do good. The lower the position, the more suitable to my ability and the more agreeable to my feelings.

Alabama soldiers, all I ask of you is to keep up with the Texans!

I have thought from the time of the cessation of the hostilities, that silence and patience on the part of the South was the true course; and I think so still. The controversy of all kinds will, in my opinion, only serve to continue excitement and passion, and will prevent the public mind from the acknowledgment and acceptance of the truth.

I have never witnessed on any previous occasion such entire disregard of the usage of civilized warfare and the dictates of humanity.

I am A man, not a sponge! If God wished a sponge to think, A SPONGE WOULD THINK!

I believe it to be the duty of everyone to unite in the restoration of the country and the reestablishment of peace and harmony.

Keep steady in the view of the great principles for which you contend. The safety of your homes and the lives of all you hold dear depend upon your courage and exertions. Let each man resolve to be victorious, and that the right of self-government, liberty and peace shall find him a defender.

I can anticipate no greater calamity for the country than the dissolution of the Union. It would be an accumulation of all the evils we complain of, and I am willing to sacrifice everything but honor for its preservation.

As a general principle you should not force young men to do their duty, but let them do it voluntarily and thereby develop their characters.

Robert E. Lee Quotes on Heart

My heart bleeds at the death of every one of our gallant men.

I pray that on this day [Christmas] when only peace and good-will are preached to mankind, better thoughts may fill the hearts of our enemies and turn them to peace.

I believe I may so, looking into my own heart, and speaking as in the presence of God, that I have never know one moment of bitterness or resentment.

We poor sinners need to come back from our wanderings to seek pardon through the all-sufficient merits of our Redeemer. And we need to pray earnestly for the power of the Holy Spirit to give us a precious revival in our hearts and among the unconverted.

Robert E. Lee Quotes Killer Angels

When he … sees the blood of the enemy, a man of honor can no longer turn away.

 Saw the face of Robert Lee. Incredible eyes. An honest man, a simpleman. Out of date. They all ride to glory, all the plumed knights.

I know nothing of what’s in front of me. It may be the entire Federal army.

Robert E. Lee Quotes about Civil Wars

My chief concern is to try to be an humble, earnest Christian.

You cannot be a true man until you learn to obey.

Teach him to deny himself.

I can only say that I am nothing but a poor sinner, trusting in Christ alone for salvation.

Robert E. Lee Quotes Gettysburg

here is another fight coming’ tomorrow, and we need you. We need every man,

God knows. You must take what I have told you, and learn from it, as a man does.

Perhaps you misunderstood my orders? Perhaps I did not make myself clear. Well, sir… this must be made *very* clear. You, sir, with your cavalry, are the eyes of this army. Without your cavalry, we are made blind. That has already happened once. It must never, *never* happen again.

There is no time.

It is the opinion of some… excellent officers that you have let us all down.

Robert E. Lee Quotes about Texas

The enemy never sees the backs of my Texans!

Robert E. Lee Quotes on Monuments

I think it wiser moreover not to keep open the sores of war, but to follow the examples of those nations who endeavored to obliterate the marks of civil strife & to commit to oblivion the feelings it engendered.

My conviction is, that however grateful it would be to the feelings of the South, the attempt in the present condition of the Country, would have the effect of retarding, instead of accelerating its accomplishment; [and] of continuing, if not adding to, the difficulties under which the Southern people labor.

As regards the erection of such a monument as is contemplated,

My engagements will not permit me to be present, & I believe if there I could not add anything material to the information existing on the subject.

Robert E. Lee Quotes After War

The dominant party cannot reign forever, and truth and justice will prevail at last.

It is well that war is so terrible. We should grow too fond of it.

The enemy is here, and if we do not whip him, he will whip us.

He has lost his left arm, but I my right.

Robert E. Lee Quotes Appomattox and Reconstruction

Governor, if I had foreseen the use those people designed to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox Courthouse; no sir, not by me. Had I foreseen these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in my right hand.

Robert E. Lee Quotes on Stonewall Jackson

“Stonewall is my Right-Hand Man”

Robert E. Lee Quotes about Enemies

The enemy is here, and if we do not whip him, he will whip us.

We must forgive our enemies.

I pray that on this day [Christmas] when only peace and good-will are preached to mankind, better thoughts may fill the hearts of our enemies and turn them to peace.

We must forgive our enemies. I can truly say that not a day has passed since the war began that I have not prayed for them.

Robert E. Lee Quotes about Virginia

Whither shall I flee? To no country on earth that I know of where there is as much liberty as yet remains to me even in Virginia.

All I ever wanted was a Virginia farm, no end of cream and fresh butter and fried chicken – not one fried chicken, or two, but unlimited fried chicken.

I think it would be better for Virginia if she could get rid of them. That is no new opinion with me. I have always thought so, and have always been in favor of emancipation

Robert E. Lee Quotes on the Confederate Flag

“Fold it up And Put it Away”

Robert E. Lee Quotes on Slavery

While we see the Course of the final abolition of human Slavery is onward, & we give it the aid of our prayers & all justifiable means in our power, we must leave the progress as well as the result in his hands who sees the end; who Chooses to work by slow influences; & with whom two thousand years are but as a Single day.

So far from engaging in a war to perpetuate slavery, I have rejoiced that slavery is abolished. I believe it will be great for the interests of the south. So fully am I satisfied with this, as regards Virginia especially, that I would cheerfully have lost all I have lost by the war, and have suffered all I have suffered, to have this object attained.

‘You cannot make soldiers of slaves, or slaves of soldiers. The day you make a soldier of them is the beginning of the end of the Revolution. And if slaves seem good soldiers, then our whole theory of slavery is wrong’.

There are few, I believe, in this enlightened age, who will not acknowledge that slavery as an institution is a moral and political evil.

Robert E. Lee Quotes about Country and Reconstruction

The enemy never sees the backs of my Texans!

Let danger never turn you aside from the pursuit of honor or the service to your

country … Know that death is inevitable and the fame of virtue is immortal

Remember, we are all one country now. Dismiss from your mind all sectional feeling, and bring them up to be Americans.

We must look to the rising generation for the restoration of the country.

Robert E. Lee Quotes about Feelings

I have fought against the people of the North because I believed they were seeking to wrest from the South dearest rights. But I have never cherished toward them bitter or vindictive feelings. And have never seen the day when I did not pray for them.

Remember, we are all one country now. Dismiss from your mind all sectional feeling, and bring them up to be Americans.

It’s the loneliest feeling in the world-to find yourself standing up when everybody else is sitting down. To have everybody look at you and say, ‘What’s the matter with him?’ I know. I know what it feels like. Walking down an empty street, listening to the sound of your own footsteps. Shutters closed, blinds drawn, doors locked against you. And you aren’t sure whether you’re walking toward something, or if you’re just walking away.

Robert E. Lee Quotes on Duty

With all my devotion to the Union, and the feeling of loyalty and duty of an American citizen, I have not been able to make up my mind to raise my hand against my relative, my children, my home. I have, therefore, resigned my commission in the Army…

Duty, then is the sublimest word in our language. Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more; you should never wish to do less.

I did only what my duty demanded. I could have taken no other course without dishonor.

I believe it to be the duty of everyone to unite in the restoration of the country and the reestablishment of peace and harmony.

Robert E. Lee Quotes Gods and Generals

“General Robert E. Lee: He’s lost his left arm. I’ve lost my right.”

“The consolidation of the states into one vast empire, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of ruin which has overwhelmed all that preceded it.”

“General Robert E. Lee: It is well that war is so terrible… or we should grow too fond of it.”

A land without memories is a people without liberty.

Robert E. Lee Quotes on Army and Music

With all my devotion to the Union, and the feeling of loyalty and duty of an American citizen, I have not been able to make up my mind to raise my hand against my relative, my children, my home. I have, therefore, resigned my commission in the Army…


General Longstreet, when once in a fight, was a most brilliant soldier; but he was the hardest man to move I had in my army.
