Listen up - there's no war that will end all wars
The end move in politics is always to pick up a gun.
War isnt declared in the name of God; it is a human affair entirely.
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.
Great is the guilt of an unnecessary war.
A war between Europeans is a civil war.
Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.
It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.
If we don't end war, war will end us.
Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.
The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
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.
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.
To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.
It is only the dead who have seen the end of war
Never was anything great achieved without danger
There is nothing worse than aggressive stupidity.
Everything in war is very simple. But the simplest thing is difficult.
Battles are lost in the same spirit in which they are won.
Never ascribe to malice that which can adequately be explained by incompetence.
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.
