Transcript

  • 1. The Horror Of War
  • 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
  • 3. The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience.  Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants.  We know more about war that we know about peace, more about killing that we know about living.  Omar Bradley
  • 4. All wars are follies, very expensive and very mischievous ones.  In my opinion, there never was a good war or a bad peace.  When will mankind be convinced and agree to settle their difficulties by arbitration?  Benjamin Franklin
  • 5. The refuge of the morally, intellectually, artistically and economically bankrupt is war. Martin H. Fischer
  • 6. Anyone who has ever looked into the glazed eyes of a soldier dying on the battlefield will think hard before starting a war.  Otto Von Bismark
  • 7. One is left with the horrible feeling now that war settles nothing; that to win a war is as disastrous as to lose one. Agatha Christie
  • 8. “ I cannot believe that war is the best solution. No one won the last war and no one will win the next.” Eleanor Roosevelt
  • 9. If we don't end war, war will end us. H. G. Wells
  • 10. The basic problems facing the world today are not susceptible to a military solution. John F. Kennedy
  • 11. There is nothing that war has ever achieved that we could not better achieve without it. Henry Ellis
  • 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
  • 18. The End May Compassion grow in you and me. May there be Peace and Harmony. With Metta Bro. Oh Teik Bin
