Because I am hard, you will not like me. But the more you hate me, the more you will learn. I am hard, but I am fair. There is no racial bigotry here. I do not look down on n***ers, k**es, w*ps or g***sers. Here you are all equally worthless.
The deadliest weapon in the world is a Marine and his rifle. It is your killer instinct which must be harnessed if you expect to survive in combat. Your rifle is only a tool. It is a hard heart that kills. If your killer instincts are not clean and strong, you will hesitate at the moment of truth. You will not kill. You will become dead Marines. And then you will be in a world of s***. Because Marines are not allowed to die without permission. Do you maggots understand?

I bet you’re the kind of guy that would f*** a person in the ass and not even have the goddamn common courtesy to give him a reach-around. I’ll be watching you.[to Private Cowboy]
I am so happy that I am alive, in one piece and short. I am in a world of shit, yes, but I am alive. And I am not afraid.
Graduation is only a few days away, and the recruits of Platoon 3092 are salty. They are ready to eat their own guts and ask for seconds. The drill instructors are proud to see that we are growing beyond their control. The Marine Corps does not want robots. The Marine Corps wants killers. The Marine Corps wants to build indestructible men. Men without fear.
