I don't know why, but I've always been fascinated by the late Gen. George S. Patton. He was a flawed character, to be sure, but he was also brilliant. He wasn't as eloquent a speaker as George C. Scott, but if you've ever seen actual footage of him, he cut a very striking figure. If you are a WWII buff, I highly recommend "The Year of the General" which featured Patton, MacArthur, Romel, Montgomery, Nimitz, Eisenhower and Marshall.
Below is a clip of the music from the final scene, that contains one of my favorite lines of all time.
"A slave stood behind the conqueror, holding a golden crown, and whispering a warning: that all glory is fleeting."
I would qualify that to say that all earthly glory is fleeting.
The Glory of God is eternal.
