  • 2. A great war leaves the country with three armies - an army of cripples, an army of mourners, and an army of thieves.  German Proverb

  • 12. War does not determine who is right - only who is left. Bertrand Russell
  • 13. War is a most uneconomical, foolish, poor arrangement, a bloody enrichment of that soil which bears the sweet flower of peace. M. E. W. SHERWOOD
  • 14. 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. DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER
  • 15. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • 16. Even if we are spared destruction by war, our lives will have to change if we want to save life from self-destruction. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
  • 17. War is so unjust and ugly that all who wage it must try to stifle the voice of conscience within themselves. Leo Tolstoy
