Looking for a quote from O'Brien's "The Things They Carried"

In The Things They Carried there is a passage mentioning how certain words like “honor” or “glory” make the narrator feel nervous or uncomfortable. Does anyone know the quote? I’ve googled several variations of search terms and I can’t find it; and alas, I don’t own the book.

Could it be this?

An amazing, harrowing, searing story. Certainly a candidate for the shortest short list of the best American short stories ever. Instant immortality.

Sorry, I’m an idiot. I should have been clearer.

That’s not it. I meant a quote from the collection of stories under the name “The Things They Carried,” not necessarily the title story. I’m not sure which specific story it’s actually from.

And yes, the title tale is a great story.


Wow. Apparently I was dead wrong and the quote is actually from A Farewell to Arms:

Sorry about that…

Thanks to Amazons ability to search through certain books I have found this.

References to honor.

References to glory.

I don’t know if that is what you are looking for.

Dude. I mean, Dude!
