    War Quotes

    Quotations about War

    • The way to win an atomic war is to make certain it never starts.
      Speech to Boston Chamber of Commerce, 1948, by Omar Bradley
    • War is not its own end, except in some catastrophic slide into absolute damnation. It's peace that's wanted. Some better peace than the one you started with.
      "The Vor Game", 1990, by Lois McMaster Bujold
    • War is not nice.
    • War may sometimes be a necessary evil. But no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other's children.

      Autobiography (1977), by Agatha Christie
    • Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events.
    • One day President Roosevelt told me that he was asking publicly for suggestions about what the war should be called. I said at once 'The Unnecessary War'.
      Second World War (1948), by Sir Winston Churchill
    • War is a series of catastrophes that results in a victory.
    • War is much too serious a matter to be entrusted to the military.
    • I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.
