Quotes about War 5

  • I regard almost all quarrels of princes on the same footing, and I see nothing that marks man's unreason so positively as war. Indeed, what folly to kill one another for interests often imaginary, and always for the pleasure of persons who do not think themselves even obliged to those who sacrifice themselves for them! --Lady Mary Wortley Montagu
  • I had supposed until that time that it was quite common for parents to love their children, but the war persuaded me that it is a rare exception. I had supposed that most people liked money better than almost anything else, but I discovered that they liked destruction even better. I had supposed that intellectuals frequently loved truth, but I found here again that not ten per cent of them prefer truth to popularity. --Bertrand Russell
  • How is the world ruled and led to war? Diplomats lie to journalists and believe these lies when they see them in print. --Karl Kraus
  • Here dead lie we because we did not choose
    To live and shame the land from which we sprung.
    Life, to be sure, is nothing much to lose;
    But young men think it is, and we were young. --A. E. Housman
  • Cry havoc! and let loose the dogs of war,
    That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
    With carrion men, groaning for burial. --William Shakespeare
  • All war represents a failure of diplomacy. --Tony Benn
  • A self-respecting nation is ready for anything, including war, except for a renunciation of its option to make war. --Simone Weil
