In Reply to: We, the unwilling do the impossible ..... etc? posted by mark cain on October 28, 2002
: hello all. does anyone know to whom the following phrase is attributed? I will misquote it yet it goes something like " we the unwilling, lead by the unknowing, do the impossible for the ungrateful"! it apparently was written on a latrine in vietnam during that particular war. it sums it up quite nicely given hindsight. help me out if you can. email [email protected] thanks
that saying is attributed to Mother Teresa:
Another site says it was the unofficial motto of the U.S. Marine Corps during the Vietnam war.You can search further by typing these words:
unwilling unknowing impossible ungrateful
into Google, checking what comes up, and evaluating how reliable each source is.
