Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.
Yippies, Hippies, Yahoos, Black Panthers, lions and tigers alike - I would swap the whole damn zoo for the kind of young Americans I saw in Vietnam.
The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
When anger rises, think of the consequences.
War is just when it is necessary; arms are permissible when there is no hope except in arms.
Battles are lost in the same spirit in which they are won.
Ideas are far more powerful than guns. We don't let our people have guns. Why should we let them have ideas?
The end move in politics is always to pick up a gun.
Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.
The evils which sapped the nation's strength had all been wrought in the name of religion.
War isnt declared in the name of God; it is a human affair entirely.
The choice is not between violence and nonviolence but between nonviolence and nonexistence.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.
Unless a nation's life faces peril, war is murder.
Either war is obsolete, or men are.
It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.
There are causes worth dying for, but none worth killing for.
The central defect of evil is not sin but the refusal to acknowledge sin.
Never ascribe to malice that which can adequately be explained by incompetence.
Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.
Even the finest sword plunged into salt water will eventually rust.
