    "Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention."

    War Quotes

    Quotations about War

    • The quickest way of ending a war is to lose it.
      Polemic, May 1946, "Second Thoughts on James Burnham", by George Orwell

      New York Times, Dec. 23, 1929, by Will Rogers
