Listen up - there's no war that will end all wars
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.
Either war is obsolete, or men are.
Theres class warfare, all right, but its my class, the rich class, thats making war, and were winning.
Everything in war is very simple. But the simplest thing is difficult.
All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.
A conqueror is always a lover of peace.
The end move in politics is always to pick up a gun.
Evil has no capital of its own. It is a parasite on goodness.
War is mainly a catalogue of blunders.
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.
Civil war? What does that mean? Is there any foreign war? Isn't every war fought between men, between brothers?
You don't reason with intellectuals. You shoot them.
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.
Great is the guilt of an unnecessary war.
Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.
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.
I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.
When anger rises, think of the consequences.
Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.
