war and peace

Adolf Hitler
Those who want to live, let them fight, and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live.
Strength lies not in defense but in attack.
Albert Einstein
It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.
We make war that we may live in peace.
Benjamin Franklin
He that would live in peace and at ease must not speak all he knows or all he sees.
Bertrand Russell
War does not determine who is right - only who is left.
Colman McCarthy
Everyone's a pacifist between wars. It's like being a vegetarian between meals.
Douglas MacArthur
Talk of imminent threat to our national security through the application of external force is pure nonsense. Indeed it is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear.
Dwight Eisenhower
Do not needlessly endanger your lives until I give you the signal.
I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity.
If men can develop weapons that are so terrifying as to make the thought of global war include almost a sentence for suicide, you would think that man's intelligence and his comprehension... would include also his ability to find a peaceful solution.
A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be mighty, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be temped to risk his own destruction.
When you appeal to force, there's one thing you must never do - lose.
We are going to have peace even if we have to fight for it.
I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of their way and let them have it.
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.
There is no glory in battle worth the blood it costs.
George Orwell
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
George Patton
May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't.
It is the unconquerable nature of man and not the nature of the weapon he uses that ensures victory.
