War quotes

Life is a thing that mutates without warning, not always in enviable ways. All part of the improbable adventure of being alive, of being a brainy biped with giant dreams on a crazy blue planet.

- Diane Ackerman

We seem to believe it is possible to ward off death by following rules of good grooming.

- Don Delillo

Mark the babe not long accustomed to this breathing world; One that hath barely learned to shape a smile, though yet irrational of soul, to grasp with tiny finger -- to let fall a tear; And, as the heavy cloud of sleep dissolves, To stretch his limbs, becoming, as might seem. The outward functions of intelligent man.

- Wordsworth, William

Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present.

- Camus, Albert

Enthusiasm is a vital element toward the individual success of every man or woman.

- Hilton, Conrad

A thought which, quarter'd, hath but one part wisdom and ever three parts coward.

- William Shakespeare

Patience permits us to cling to our faith in the Lord when we are tossed about by suffering as if by surf. When the undertow grasps us we will realize that we are somehow being carried forward even as we tumble. We are actually being -helped even as we cry for help.

- Maxwell, Neal A.

Don't think of retiring from the world until the world will be sorry that you retire. 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.

- Samuel Johnson

War is like love, it always finds a way.

- Brecht, Bertolt

When one of these flashbacks was reported to me by a conscious patient, I was incredulous. For example, when a mother told me she was suddenly aware, as my electrode touched the cortex, of being in the kitchen listening to the voice of her little boy who was playing outside in the yard.

- Penfield, Wilder

It is a bore, I admit, to be past seventy, for you are left for execution, and are daily expecting the death-warrant; but it is not anything very capital we quit. We are, at the close of life, only hurried away from stomach-aches, pains in the joints, from sleepless nights and unamusing days, from weakness, ugliness, and nervous tremors; but we shall all meet again in another planet, cured of all our defects.

- Smith, Sydney

War -- what a waist of time. It's all about great achievements for the very few but hideous losses for the very many.


May you look back on the past with as much pleasure as you look forward to the future.

- Dickson, Paul

There is a schizophrenic nature in modern politics. A leader is expected to have a religious faith but he is not supposed to let it influence him in his duties. Somehow, the truths that determine everything else about his existence are not allowed to influence how he conducts himself in public life. Not only that, his principles are usually considered so personal that the public is not even allowed to know for certain what they are. This passes for noble statecraft in our time. It was once thought cowardice.

- Stephen Mansfield

We must love one another, yes, yes, that's all true enough, but nothing says we have to like each other. It may be the very recognition of all men as our brothers that accounts for the sibling rivalry, and even enmity, we have toward so many of them.

- Vries, Peter De

Work and thou canst escape the reward; whether the work be fine or course, planting corn or writing epics, so only it be honest work, done to thine own approbation, it shall earn a reward to the senses as well as to the thought.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo

The highest reward that God gives us for good work is the ability to do better work.

- Hubbard, Elbert

May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields and, until we meet again may god hold you in the palm of his hand


If any question why we died, tell them, because our fathers lied.

- Kipling, Rudyard

Cowards are cruel, but the brave Love mercy, and delight to save.

- John Gay
