Ulysses S. Grant Quote
Oh, I am heartily tired of hearing about what Lee is going to do. Some of you always seem to think he is suddenly going to turn a double somersault, and land in our rear and on both of our flanks at the same time. Go back to your command, and try to think what we are going to do ourselves, instead of what Lee is going to do.
As quoted in "Campaigning with Grant" (December 1896), by General Horace Porter, The Century Magazine.
