Thought For The Day

After yesterday’s posting about what’s happened in Afghanistan and the war the U.S. had there, I decided to compile a list of my favorite quotes about war…

“War does not determine who is right – only who is left.” (Bertrand Russell)

“How can you have a war on terrorism when war itself is terrorism?” (Howard Zinn)

“No solider ever really survives a war.” (Audie Murphy)

“War grows out of desire of the individual to gain advantage at the expense of his fellow man.” (Napoleon Hill)

“The world is full enough of hurts and mischances without wars to multiply them.” (J.R.R. Tolkien)

“Religion isn’t the cause of wars, it’s the excuse.” (Jasper Fforde)

“The military don’t start wars. Politicians start wars.” (William C. Westmoreland)

“You don’t spread democracy with a barrel of a gun.” (Helen Thomas)

“War is merely the continuation of politics by other means.” (Carl von Clausewitz)

“There is only one way to win a war which has begun: To stop it immediately; that is the way!” (Mehmet Murat ildan)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
