Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.

Abraham Lincoln

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it."

Churchill

Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it."

History will be kind to me for I intend to write it

Don't talk to me about naval tradition. It's nothing but rum, sodomy and the lash.

Democracy don't rule the world, you'd better get that in your head. This world is ruled by violence, but I guess that's better left unsaid.

We would rather be ruined than changed,

We would rather die in our dread

Than climb the cross of the moment

And let our illusions die.
