War is over ... If you want it.
When you surround an army, leave an outlet free. Do not press a desperate foe too hard.
Heaven cannot brook two suns, nor earth two masters.
The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
What is evil? - Whatever springs from weakness.
Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.
Never ascribe to malice that which can adequately be explained by incompetence.

A conqueror is always a lover of peace.
War is mainly a catalogue of blunders.
It is very queer that the unhappiness of the world is so often brought on by small men.

There is nothing worse than aggressive stupidity.
All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.
How do you defeat terrorism? Donít be terrorized.
