    War Quotes

    Quotations about War

    • Politics is war without bloodshed while war is politics with bloodshed.

    • The quickest way of ending a war is to lose it.
      Polemic, May 1946, "Second Thoughts on James Burnham", by George Orwell
    • You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake.
    • Take the diplomacy out of war and the thing would fall flat in a week.
    • You can't say that civilization don't advance, however, for in every war they kill you in a new way.
      New York Times, Dec. 23, 1929, by Will Rogers
