I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent
Never was anything great achieved without danger
Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.
There was never a bad peace or a good war.
It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.
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.
The earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed
There is no instance of a nation benefiting from prolonged warfare
Great is the guilt of an unnecessary war.
Never ascribe to malice that which can adequately be explained by incompetence.
All warfare is based on deception.
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.
Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
Do not let us speak of darker days; let us speak rather of sterner days. These are not dark days: these are great days - the greatest days our country has ever lived.
Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.
When the enemy is relaxed, make them toil. When full, starve them. When settled, make them move.
Heaven cannot brook two suns, nor earth two masters.
Hatred is gained as much by good works as by evil.
When you surround an army, leave an outlet free. Do not press a desperate foe too hard.
I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.
To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.
