The quote originates in Christianity and confuses many people as it has been said by many famous people over the years. For instance, younger people may associate it with King Bob from Disney's recess, whilst the older population may associate the saying with General George S. Patton.

Born on November 11, 1885, this famous United States Army officer was best known for his leadership during the World War II. He was a famous general and is also well known for quoting the above saying when he was giving order to invade Germany. He was well known and notorious for his controversial outspokenness as well as his eccentricity.

The General was commissioned in the United States Army after he graduated from the US Military Academy at West Point in 1909. Between 1916 and 1917, he also participated in the failed Pancho Villa Expedition. This was a notorious United States operation that attempted to catch the Mexican revolutionary.

During the first World War he was equally well known. He was the first officer who was assigned to the then new United States Tank Corps. He was heavily involved with the military in France. Decades later in the second World War he commanded armies and corps in Sicily, North African as well as the European Theatre of Operations.

This great man was just one of the many that have quoted this equally well known saying that originated from the Christian religion. It seems that great people can get away with quoting such historical sayings, especially when they are involved in something particularly historic. Whether it's a rumour or not, the General quoting this saying during the attack on Germany is incredibly famous and many people associate the saying directly with him, General George Patton.

I think it may come from the Bible, relating to the Ten Commandment. Possibly Moses?
