Everything in war is very simple. But the simplest thing is difficult.
Either war is obsolete, or men are.
As soon as men decide that all means are permitted to fight an evil, then their good becomes indistinguishable from the evil that they set out to destroy.
Some people are contriving ways and means of making us collapse.
Any alliance whose purpose is not the intention to wage war is senseless and useless.
All the forces in the world are not so powerful as an idea whose time has come.
It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.
All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.
It is only the dead who have seen the end of war
Never was anything great achieved without danger
The central defect of evil is not sin but the refusal to acknowledge sin.
When anger rises, think of the consequences.
Even the finest sword plunged into salt water will eventually rust.
Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the war of the future.
Wanton killing of innocent civilians is terrorism, not a war against terrorism.
You can not lead a battle if you think you look silly on a horse.
The end move in politics is always to pick up a gun.
A person may cause evil to others not only by his actions but by his inaction, and in either case he is justly accountable to them for the injury.
There was never a bad peace or a good war.
In war, as in life, it is often necessary, when some cherished scheme has failed, to take up the best alternative open, and if so, it is folly not to work for it with all your might.
Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.
