Quote of the Day (one of my favorites)

The graveyards are full of indispensable men.
-- Charles de Gaulle, 1890-1970

A little history below...

When in 1966 Charles de Gaulle ordered France out of NATO and American troops off French soil, Secretary of State Dean Rusk asked him if that included the American soldiers lying dead in the cemeteries at Normandy and throughout France
-Charles Krauthammer quotes

Here's another version...
The cemeteries are filled with people who thought the world couldn't get along without them.
-American Proverb quotes
