War quotes
War
I don't have a warm personal enemy left. They've all died off. I miss them terribly because they helped define me.

- Clare Booth Luce
Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.

- Sun-tzu
That man's best works should be such bungling imitations of Nature's infinite perfection, matters not much; but that he should make himself an imitation, this is the fact which Nature moans over, and deprecates beseechingly. Be spontaneous, be truthful, be free, and thus be individuals! is the song she sings through warbling birds, and whispering pines, and roaring waves, and screeching winds.

- Child, Lydia M.
The whole fauna of human fantasies, their marine vegetation, drifts and luxuriates in the dimly lit zones of human activity, as though plaiting thick tresses of darkness. Here, too, appear the lighthouses of the mind, with their outward resemblance to less pure symbols. The gateway to mystery swings open at the touch of human weakness and we have entered the realms of darkness. One false step, one slurred syllable together reveal a man's thoughts.

- Aragon, Louis
It is a very lonely life that a man leads, who becomes aware of truths before their times.

- Thomas Brackett Reed
This is the law of prosperity. When apparent adversity comes, be not cast down by it, but make the best of it., and always look forward for better things, for conditions more prosperous.

- Trine, Ralph Waldo
War will never cease until babies begin to come into the world with larger cerebrums and smaller adrenal glands.

- Mencken, H. L.
Son, in war times it is not safe to think unless one travels with the mob.

- Charles Lindberg Sr. to Charles Lindberg Jr. in 1917
When we become aware of our humility, we've lost it.

Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once.

- William Shakespeare
The appalling thing is the degree of charity women are capable of. You see it all the time... love lavished on absolute fools. Love's a charity ward, you know.

- Durrell, Lawrence
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.

- Aristotle
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

- Henri Nouwen
Don't flail against the world, use it. Flexibility is the operative principle in the art of war.

- Sun Tzu
I value kindness to human beings first of all, and kindness to animals. I don't respect the law; I have a total irreverence for anything connected with society except that which makes the roads safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper, and old men and women warmer in the winter, and happier in the summer.

- Brendan Behan
A man's women folk, whatever their outward show of respect for his merit and authority, always regard him secretly as an ass, and with something akin to pity. His most gaudy sayings and doings seldom deceive them; they see the actual man within, and know him for a shallow and pathetic fellow. In this fact, perhaps, lies one of the best proofs of feminine intelligence, or, as the common phrase makes it, feminine intuition.

- Mencken, H. L.
There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that is your own self. So you have to begin there, not outside, not on other people. That comes afterwards, when you have worked on your own corner.

- Aldous Huxley
The function of literature, through all its mutations, has been to make us aware of the particularity of selves, and the high authority of the self in its quarrel with its society and its culture. Literature is in that sense subversive.

- Trilling, Lionel
How little praise warms out of a man the good that is in him, as the sneer of contempt which he feels is unjust chill the ardor to excel.

- Bulwer-Lytton, Edward G.
The art of leading, in operations large or small, is the art of dealing with humanity, of working diligently on behalf of men, of being sympathetic with them, but equally, of insisting that they make a square facing toward their own problems.

- S. L. A. Marshall
