War quotes page 3

If we don't end war, war will end us.
H. G. Wells

There have been only 268 of the past 3,421 years free of war.
Will Durant, The Lessons of History, 1968

I have seen war. I have seen war on land and sea. I have seen blood running from the
wounded. I have seen men coughing out their gassed lungs. I have seen the dead in the
mud. I have seen cities destroyed. I have seen 200 limping, exhausted men come out of line -
the survivors of a regiment of 1,000 that went forward 48 hours before. I have seen children
starving. I have seen the agony of mothers and wives. I hate war.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

We have a war when at least one of the parties to a conflict wants something more than it
wants peace.
Jeane J. Kirkpatrick

A single death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic.
Joseph Stalin

I want to stand by my country, but I cannot vote for war.
Jeannette Rankin

Jose Narosky

War is delightful to those who have had no experience to it.
Desiderius Erasmus

Sometimes I think war is God's way of teaching us geography.
Paul Rodriguez

I know war as few men now living know it, and nothing to me is more revolting. I have long
advocated its complete abolition, as its very destructiveness on both friend and foe has
rendered it useless as a means of settling international disputes.
Gen. Douglas MacArthur

In war, there is no second prize for the runner-up.
Gen. Omar N. Bradley

Who overcomes by force hath overcome but half his foe.
John Milton

The best strategy is always to be very strong; first in general, then at the decisive point...
There is no higher and simpler law of strategy than that of keeping one's forces concentrated...
In short the first principle is: act with the utmost concentration.
Carl von Clausewitz

When goods do not cross borders, soldiers will.
Frederic Bastiat

When you want to fight us, we don't let you and you can't find us. But when we want to fight
you, we make sure you can't get away and we hit you squarely... and wipe you out... The
enemy advances, we retreat; the enemy camps, we harass; the enemy tires, we attack; the
enemy retreats, we pursue.
Mao Tse-tung

You can build a throne with bayonets, but you can't sit on it for long.
Boris Yeltsin
