Author Quotes

There can be no compromise with war; it cannot be reformed or controlled; cannot be disciplined into decency or codified into common sense.

War is the slaughter of human beings, temporarily regarded as enemies, on as large a scale as possible.

The most disappointing feature of working for a cause is that so few people have a philosophy of life.

What one decides to do in a crisis depends upon one’s philosophy of life, and that philosophy cannot be changed by an incident. If one hasn’t any philosophy in a crisis, others make the decision.

You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake.
