„One minute decides the outcome of a battle, one hour the success of a campaign, one day the fate of empires.“
other version: One minute can decide the outcome of the battle, one hour - the outcome of the campaign, and one day - the fate of the country.

Quoted in W. Lyon Blease, "Suvorof," 1926.
„As long as the enemy fights he must be beaten relentlessly, but a defeated enemy and especially the civilian population must be treated generously.“

„Die for the Virgin, for your mother the Empress, for the royal family. The Church will pray to God for the dead. The survivor has honor and glory.“
"The Art of Victory: The Life and Achievements of Field Marshal Suvorov" - Page 217 by Philip Longworth - 1966.
Quoted in K. Ossipov, "Suvorov", 1945.
"Political Affairs" - Page 1005 by Earl Browder.
„The three military arts. First - Apprehension, how to arrange things in camp, how to march, how to attack, pursue, and strike; for taking up position, final judgement of the enemy's strength, for estimating his intentions. Second - Quickness… This quickness doesn't weary the men. The enemy doesn't expect us, reckons us 100 versts away, and if a long way off to begin with - 200, 300 or more - suddenly we're on him, like snow on the head; his head spins. Attack with what comes up, with what God sends; the cavalry to begin, smash, strike, cut off, don't let slip, hurra! Brothers do miracles! Third - Attack. Leg supports leg. Arm strengthens arm; many men will die in the volley; the enemy has the same weapons, but he doesn't know the Russian bayonet. Extend the line - attack at once with cold steel; extend the line without stopping… the Cossacks to get through everywhere… In two lines is strength; in three, half as much again; the first breaks, the second drives into heaps, the third overthrows.“
From "The Science of Victory," 1796.
