Memorial Day Sayings-Quotes

“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.”

The brave die never, though they sleep in dust:Their courage nerves a thousand living men.~Minot J. Savage

These heroes are dead. They died for liberty – they died for us. They are at rest. They sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines.

They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest. Earth may run red with other wars – they are at peace. In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death. I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead: cheers for the living; tears for the dead.

The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example.  ~Benjamin Disraeli

Memorial Day Poems & Quotes

Memorial Day Sayings and Quotes

How sleep the brave, who sink to rest,
By all their country’s wishes blest!
When Spring, with dewy fingers cold,
Returns to deck their hallow’d mould,
She there shall dress a sweeter sod
Than Fancy’s feet have ever trod.
By fairy hands their knell is rung,
There Honour comes, a pilgrim gray,
To bless the turf that wraps their clay;
And Freedom shall awhile repair,
To dwell, a weeping hermit, there.

The greatest glory of a free-born people is to transmit that freedom to their children. -William Havard

And I’m proud to be an American,where at least I know I’m free.And I won’t forget the men who died,who gave that right to me.~Lee Greenwood

They are dead; but they live in each Patriot’s breast,
And their names are engraven on honor’s bright crest.

Happily on the sun or feel the rain
Without remembering how they who went
Ungrudgingly and spent
Their lives for us loved, too, the sun and rain?

Peace to each manly soul that sleepeth;
Rest to each faithful eye that weepeth…
~Thomas Moore

Funny Memorial Day Quotes & Sayings 2018


Decoration Day is the most beautiful of our national holidays…. The grim cannon have turned into palm branches, and the shell and shrapnel into peach blossoms.  ~Thomas Bailey Aldrich

Patriotism was a living fire of unquestioned belief and purpose.

I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day.  I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it.  We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did.  ~Benjamin Harrison

Cover them over with beautiful flowers,Deck them with garlands, those brothers of ours,Lying so silent by night and by day Sleeping the years of their manhood away.Give them the meed they have won in the past;Give them the honors their future forcast; Give them the chaplets they won in the strife;Give them the laurels they lost with their life. ~Will Carleton
