Dishonesty, cowardice and duplicity are never impulsive.
- Knight, George A.
War Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about War

1.
War is a contagion.
Roosevelt, Franklin D.

2.
You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war.
Albert Einstein

3.
Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.
Reagan, Ronald

4.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse. A war to protect other human beings against tyrannical injustice; a war to give victory to their own ideas of right and good, and which is their own war, carried on for an honest purpose by their own free choice -- is often the means of their regeneration.
Mill, John Stuart

5.
The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
Sun Tzu

6.
A wage hike is very hard to take away, but bonuses and profit-sharing can disappear very quickly in hard times...More people are realizing that bonuses look like raises, but really aren't.
Bauman, Al

7.
No country has suffered so much from the ruins of war while being at peace as the American.
Dahlberg, Edward

8.
War is the supreme drama of a completely mechanized society.
Mumford, Lewis

9.
I see that old flagpole still stands. Have your troops hoist the colors to its peak, and let no enemy ever haul them down.
Macarthur, Douglas

10.
Unless they are immediate victims, the majority of mankind behaves as if war was an act of God which could not be prevented; or they behave as if war elsewhere was none of their business. It would be a bitter cosmic joke if we destroy ourselves due to atrophy of the imagination.
Gellhorn, Martha

11.
What are we hoping to get out of it, what's it all in aid of -- is it really just for the sake of a gloved hand waving at you from a golden coach?
Osborne, John

12.
What a country calls its vital economic interests are not the things which enable its citizens to live, but the things which enable it to make war. Petrol is more likely than wheat to be a cause of international conflict.
Weil, Simone

13.
What vast additions to the conveniences and comforts of living might mankind have acquired, if the money spent in wars had been employed in works of public utility; what an extension of agriculture even to the tops of our mountains; what rivers rendered navigable, or joined by canals; what bridges, aqueducts, new roads, and other public works, edifices, and improvements might not have been obtained by spending those millions in doing good, which in the last war have been spent in doing mischief.
Franklin, Benjamin

14.
Older men declare war. But it is youth that must fight and die.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

15.
You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
Buddha

16.
It is better to be killed than frightened to death.
Surtees, Robert S.

17.
I feel sure that coups d'?tat would go much better if there were seats, boxes, and stalls so that one could see what was happening and not miss anything.
Goncourt, Edmond and Jules De

18.
Those who are at war with others are not at peace with themselves.
Hazlitt, William

19.
I hate a fellow whom pride, or cowardice, or laziness drives into a corner, and who does nothing when he is there but sit and growl; let him come out as I do, and bark.
Johnson, Samuel

20.
It is better to be a coward for a minute than dead for the rest of your life.
Proverb, Irish

21.
A coward is a hero with a wife, kids, and a mortgage.
Kitman, Marvin

22.
There are two things which will always be very difficult for a democratic nation: to start a war and to end it.
Tocqueville, Alexis De

23.
The idea of all-out nuclear war is unsettling.
Walter Goodman

24.
A just war is hospitable to every self-deception on the part of those waging it, none more than the certainty of virtue, under whose shelter every abomination can be committed with a clear conscience.
Cockburn, Alexander

25.
Wars teach us not to love our enemies, but to hate our allies.
W. L. George

26.
Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events.
Sir Winston Churchill

27.
War is not a life: it is a situation, one which may neither be ignored nor accepted.
Eliot, T. S.

28.
The pioneers of a warless world are the young men and women who refuse military service.
Einstein, Albert

29.
No man, who continues to add something to the material, intellectual and moral well-being of the place in which he lives, is left long without proper reward.
Washington, Booker T.

30.
A new kind of award has been added -- the deathbed award. It is not an award of any kind. Either the recipient has not acted at all, or was not nominated, or did not win the award the last few times around. It is intended to relieve the guilty conscience of the Academy members and save face in front of the public. The Academy has the horrible taste to have a star, choking with emotion, present this deathbed award so that there can be no doubt in anybody's mind why the award is so hurriedly given. Lucky is the actor who is too sick to watch the proceedings on television.
Dietrich, Marlene

31.
War both needs and generates certain virtues; not the highest, but what may be called the preliminary virtues, as valor, veracity, the spirit of obedience, the habit of discipline. Any of these, and of others like them, when possessed by a nation, and no matter how generated, will give them a military advantage, and make them more likely to stay in the race of nations.
Bagehot, Walter

32.
There are several good protections against temptation, but the surest is cowardice.
Twain, Mark

33.
The problem in defense is how far you can go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without.
Eisenhower, Dwight D.

34.
What war has always been is a puberty ceremony. It's a very rough one, but you went away a boy and came back a man, maybe with an eye missing or whatever but godammit you were a man and people had to call you a man thereafter.
Vonnegut Jr., Kurt

35.
War is much too serious a matter to be entrusted to the military.
Georges Clemenceau

36.
Man gives every reason for his conduct save one, every excuse for his crimes save one, every plea for his safety save one; and that one is his cowardice.
Shaw, George Bernard

37.
Companies that give excellent service reward employees for providing it.

38.
Those who dare to interpret God's will must never claim Him as an asset for one nation or group rather than another. War springs from the love and loyalty which should be offered to God being applied to some God substitute, one of the most dangerous being nationalism.
Runcie, Robert

39.
I was always embarrassed by the words sacred, glorious and sacrifice and the expression in vain. We had heard them, sometimes standing in the rain almost out of earshot, so that only the shouted words came through, and had read them, on proclamations that were slapped up by billposters over other proclamations, now for a long time, and I had seen nothing sacred, and the things that were glorious had no glory and the sacrifices were like the stockyards at Chicago if nothing was done with the meat except to bury it.
Hemingway, Ernest

40.
Cry havoc! and let slip the dogs of war, that this foul deed shall smell above the earth with carrion men, groaning for burial.
Shakespeare, William

41.
The human race is a race of cowards; and I am not only marching in that procession, but carrying a banner.
Twain, Mark

42.
It is one of the most beautiful compensations in life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

43.
The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Strike him as hard as you can, and keep moving on.
Ulysses S. Grant

44.
War is a cowardly escape from the problems of peace.
Thomas Mann

45.
If it were not for the war, this war would suit me down to the ground.
Sayers, Dorothy L.

46.
The most terrible job in warfare is to be a second lieutenant leading a platoon when you are on the battlefield.
Eisenhower, Dwight D.

47.
The Oscars demonstrate the will of the people to control and judge those they have elected to stand above them (much, perhaps, as in bygone days, an election celebrated the same).
Mamet, David

48.
I have a deep sympathy with war, it so apes the gait and bearing of the soul.
Thoreau, Henry David

49.
For cowards the road of desertion should be left open; they will carry over to the enemy nothing, but their fears.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

50.
The cowards never started -- and the weak died along the way.
