confused That's what time in Scotland ??
I know it's sometime in the wee sma' 'oors, I am just wondering how far past my beddy bye time it is. eyes
P.S. Hang on MMMNavy, didn't Hannibal cross the Alps in the 5th Century BC, or sometime around there ? 'Cos Pliny the Elder chronicled it, and he definitely died at Pompeii, in 79 AD I think it was.
Good mottos whatever ! yeah

Hannibal born 247 BC, died 183 BC, so actually 2nd and 3rd centuries BC. Btu close enough. Pliny wrote about everything. And yes he was most curious about that eruption down at Vesuvius and got a little too close . . . which discussion of volcanoes and sudden eruptions of toxic lava and gas brings us ***ll circle back to . .  Crohns.

tongue ROTFL
Great minds think alike, Mike ! Chillies for me = Vesuvius...shocked
Yes, I thought that 5th Century BC did seem a bit early, I seem to remember the Romans were still a tad het up about the Carthaginians even in Pliny's time which would indicate conflict within the previous century, but my declarative memory is atrocious so I just assumed I was wrong and it was a typo. Cracker of a quote, isn't it ? Makes you wonder what he did when they set grease covered pigs on fire and sent them at his elephants... ! (Someone had a darn good barbecue that day, I'll bet tongue )

You are quite correct. I copied it from the wrong part of my quotes...LOL
Hannibel's quote said we will find a way or make one.
Phillip Sidney said I will find a way or make one. (1554-1586)
So you can see how I screwed this up...LOL

But of course now I cannot fix it on my profile, it is a darn good thing I am not in history anymore.  I think it needs a day to be approved.  But of course several of mine get caught in the filters like General Joe Stillwells motto.

Okay, I'm hooked... eyes I'm dangling... turnI'm gasping... confused What was General Joe Stilwell's motto ?
I get the feeling I will recognise it, I have read enough military history...can you even have "history" without "military ?"
Of course I know you guys are ahead of me in the educational stakes...I'm still wondering, how many hours ? tongue

shakehead Oy veh ! All those credit hours, and he still doesn't get that I'm referring to the difference between the clocks of bonnie auld penny-pinching Scotland and the land of the free (market credit economy) ! eyes
I kind of disagree with Stilwell here. My experience has been that being ground down tends to sharpen me like a knife on a whetstone - okay, there's less life left in me, but I am more use when I get going. That which does not destroy me makes me stronger.
( ideaI can certainly never say my life has been pointless - no man is ever entirely useless, he can always serve as a terrible example to others... tongue)

You are correct, I completely missed it. 
It is American military history and I seriously doubt that many American's could tell you who he was. 
but I think you might find that the definition of salty sea dog has changed...LOL

But then again I will take all dumb blonde jokes, because I so richly deserve them...LOL
 
Maybe I need quotes from Deborah Sampson, Anne Hutchinson, Mary Queen of Scots, Boudicca, etc.
