    This quote came from FDR's first inaugural address from 1933, when he went on to tackle the depression and the economic crisis with his "New Deal" politics. In his speech he was mostly targeting the attitude of pessimism, which ruled the US back then.

    See:

    "I am certain that my fellow Americans expect that on my induction into the Presidency I will address them with a candor and a decision which the present situation of our people impel. This is preeminently the time to speak the truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly. Nor need we shrink from honestly facing conditions in our country today. This great Nation will endure as it has endured, will revive and will prosper. So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory. I am convinced that you will again give that support to leadership in these critical days...."

    A less "warry" quote, but one that has much to do with the admiration in which the late Queen Mother was held.
    In September 1940, Buckingham Palace was bombed, with the Royal Family in residence, although no one was hurt.
    The then Queen's reaction was, "I'm so glad. Now I feel I can look the East End in the face."

    Her daughter is made of the same stuff:

    The Queen issued a defiant message yesterday to the terrorists who bombed London. "They will not change our way of life," she said.

    During a visit to staff and victims at the Royal London Hospital in the East End, she made an unexpected speech to staff, who cheered her as she entered the canteen.

    Referring to East Enders' experience of the Blitz, she said: "Sadly, we in Britain have been all too familiar with acts of terrorism and members of my generation, especially at this end of London, know that we have been here before.

    "Atrocities such as these simply reinforce our sense of community, our humanity, our trust in the rule of law.''

    The British Empire and the French Republic, linked together in their cause and in their need, will defend to the death their native soil, aiding each other like good comrades to the utmost of their strength.

    Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail.

    We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender

    Winston S Churchill
    The Gurkha soldier
    Bravest of the brave
    Most generous of the generous
    Never had country
    More faithful friends
    Than you

    That is one of my favorite BDL. Best inspirational quote. But the best quote of ww2 has to be "NUTS" as stated by Man of Stoat earlier. Even when relived the 101st did not see themselves as rescued.


    Another I love in general is from Erwin Rommel:

    "When in the absence of orders, go find something and kill it."

    - Hermann Göring, On August 9, 1939
    No doubt the most stupid statement of any axis warlord, that can show the mental deficiences of Göring.

    "Peace is a precious and a desirable thing. Our generation, bloodied in wars, certainly deserves peace. But peace, like almost all things of this world, has its price, a high but a measurable one. We in Poland do not know the concept of peace at any price. There is only one thing in the lives of men, nations and countries that is without price. That thing is honor."
    Jozef Beck, Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs - speech on May 5, 1939, less than four months before Adolf Hitler's military attack on Poland
