"You're not just going out there, maybe sacrificing your own life. There's also sacrifices still going on at home. You can serve in the military and have a good marriage, but you just need to be aware of it so you can take those steps to take care of it."
"A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person."Chris Kyle on Mignon McLaughlin
"By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher."Chris Kyle on Socrates
"It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages."Chris Kyle on Friedrich Nietzsche
"How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being."Chris Kyle on Oscar Wilde
"Don't marry the person you think you can live with marry only the individual you think you can't live without."Chris Kyle on James C. Dobson
"When I grew up, I only had two dreams. One was to be a cowboy and another was to be in the military. I grew up extremely patriotic and riding horses."
"It was my duty to shoot the enemy, and I don't regret it. My regrets are for the people I couldn't save: Marines, soldiers, buddies. I'm not naive, and I don't romanticize war. The worst moments of my life have come as a SEAL. But I can stand before God with a clear conscience about doing my job."
