The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
There was never a bad peace or a good war.
Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.
From the happy expression on their faces you might have supposed that they welcomed the war. I have met with men who loved stamps, and stones, and snakes, but I could not imagine any man loving war.

The choice is not between violence and nonviolence but between nonviolence and nonexistence.
Know yourself and you will win all battles.
If we don't end war, war will end us.
If the Nuremberg laws were applied, then every post-war American president would have been hanged.
War isnt declared in the name of God; it is a human affair entirely.
There are causes worth dying for, but none worth killing for.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.
Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the war of the future.
To secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but theopportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.
All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.
If you try to cure evil with evil you will add more pain to your fate.
War is over ... If you want it.
People are free to campaign and they will be free to vote. There won't be any soldiers, you know, at the queues. Anyone who has the right to vote is free to go and cast his vote anywhere in his own area, in his own constituency.
When the enemy is relaxed, make them toil. When full, starve them. When settled, make them move.
Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.
It is very queer that the unhappiness of the world is so often brought on by small men.
