Battleground quotes by Frederick Weisel
#1. Of course, when you fall out of love, it's rarely about just one failure or one betrayal, is it? ...
How does it happen? All those things you once loved about each other are replaced by other things that remind you of something you hate until you're always setting each other off, and what you share is a battleground. In the end, the failure turns out to be less about sex - which surprises most men - and more about loss of respect. One morning your partner looks at you across the bed and wonders at the waywardness of her own heart - how, she asks herself, can she feel such disdain for someone she once felt such love? #Quote by Frederick Weisel
Battleground quotes by Shamita Das Dasgupta
#2. You have to realize where you stand, the ground underneath you, that's your battleground. #Quote by Shamita Das Dasgupta
Battleground quotes by Bill Bryson
#3. Taxonomy is described sometimes as a science and sometimes as an art, but really it's a battleground. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Battleground quotes by Sandra Brown
#4. He made a costly error in judgement and sent an entire regiment into a virtual slaughterhouse. It happens frequently. Officers risk their troops' lives for the sake of a promotion. Not my father. He valued the life of every man under his command, from his officers to the humblest fresh recruit. When he realized what had happened, he was devastated. He couldn't ever forget that his error had cost the lives of so many men, created so many widows and orphans..."
"But, Lyon, measured against his valor, one mistake is forgivable."
"To us, yes. Not to him. He was sickened that the battle was hailed as one of the turning points of the war. He was decorated for it. It was considered a great victory, but it defeated him as a soldier, as a man. When he came home and was hailed a hero, he couldn't stand the conflict within himself. He didn't feel like a hero. He felt like a traitor."
"That can't be!"
"Not a traitor to his country, but to the men who had trusted his judgement and leadership. It was a conflict he never could reconcile, so he retired from the Army and came here and shut out the world and all reminders of the lie he was living."
They were quiet for a moment before she said,"No one would have thrown stones at him, Lyon. he was a respected man, a hero, a leader at a time in history when America needed heroes and leaders. It was a battleground that spread out for miles. Admist all the chaos he may have thought he made a mistake when he actually didn't. #Quote by Sandra Brown
Battleground quotes by Ilona Andrews
#5. Where is Arland?"
"Rapunzel decided to walk around in the woods to get 'the feel of the battleground.' He won't leave the grounds and he promises to defend the inn with 'all the strength in his body.' I told him if he gets in trouble, he should try singing prettily so his woodland friends will come to the rescue. I don't think he got it. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Battleground quotes by Jennifer Brown
#6. Sometimes, in my world where parents hated one another and school was a battleground, it sucked to be me. #Quote by Jennifer Brown
Battleground quotes by Ray Bradbury
#7. The mosquitos were gone from the porch, and surely when they abandoned the conflict the war with Time was really done, there was nothing for it but that humans also forsake the battleground. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Battleground quotes by Ryan Adams
#8. You could eat sushi off my bookshelf. My cleaning regime is like a battleground. I'm Genghis Khan and my cleaning products are my Mongolian army and I take no prisoners. The rest of my life is an experiment in chaos so I like to keep my flat neat. #Quote by Ryan Adams
Battleground quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#9. Psychotherapy is a sanctuary; it is a battleground; it is a place I have been psychotic, neurotic, elated, confused, and despairing beyond belief. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Battleground quotes by Kalle Lasn
#10. All of us somehow felt that the next battleground was going to be culture. We all felt somehow that our culture had been stolen from us – by commercial forces, by advertising agencies, by TV broadcasters. It felt like we were no longer singing our songs and telling stories, and generating our culture from the bottom up, but now we were somehow being spoon-fed this commercial culture top down. #Quote by Kalle Lasn
Battleground quotes by Libba Bray
#11. Every city is a ghost.
New buildings rise upon the bones of the old so that each shiny steel bean, each tower of brick carries within it the memories of what has gone before, an architectural haunting. Sometimes you can catch a glimpse of these former incarnations in the awkward angle of a street or filigreed gate, an old oak door peeking out from a new facade, the plaque commemorating the spot that was once a battleground, which became a saloon and is now a park. #Quote by Libba Bray
Battleground quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#12. To sustain an environment suitable for man, we must fight on a thousand battlegrounds. Despite all of our wealth and knowledge, we cannot create a redwood forest, a wild river, or a gleaming seashore. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Battleground quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#13. I did not think - I was a battleground for the thoughts of many men. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Battleground quotes by Ole Hallesby
#14. The secret prayer chamber is a bloody battleground. Here violent and decisive battles are fought out. Here the fate of
souls for time and eternity is determined, in quietude and
solitude. #Quote by Ole Hallesby
Battleground quotes by Mara Liasson
#15. The president is under 50 percent approval ratings in all the battleground states. So, you could say that President Obama is defying gravity by still being in a dead heat with Mitt Romney. And one of the reasons that he is, is because the changing face of the electorate are giving him a small boost. #Quote by Mara Liasson
Battleground quotes by David Gemmell
#16. All wars are started by angry old men, but they are fought by young men who die for reasons that are beyond them. In the end, the same old men sit around tables and the war ends. Nothing is achieved. Nothing is gained. New faces move into old castles, and the sons of the dead build families ready to feed new battleground graveyards. #Quote by David Gemmell
Battleground quotes by Elizabeth Dole
#17. Iraq is the central battleground in the war on terror. The terrorists certainly know what is at stake, which is why they are pulling out all the stops to derail our efforts there. They know that a free and democratic Iraq is a serious blow to their interests. #Quote by Elizabeth Dole
Battleground quotes by Aysha Taryam
#18. When an entire segment of the world is burned and reduced to a lawless battleground for thugs and mercenaries, a land where government does not exist, where the slate of history is being wiped out and hope has drowned in gallons of innocent blood, the only respite comes in the form of the open seas and what lies beyond the horizon. So ships are boarded and pain is tolerated just a little while longer. #Quote by Aysha Taryam
Battleground quotes by Douglas Rushkoff
#19. I am much less concerned with whatever it is technology may be doing to people that what people are choosing to do to one another through technology. Facebook's reduction of people to predictively modeled profiles and investment banking's convolution of the marketplace into an algorithmic battleground were not the choices of machines. #Quote by Douglas Rushkoff
Battleground quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#20. And they can appreciate, through personal experience, that the really decisive battleground of American freedom is in the hearts and minds of our own people ... The path we travel is narrow and long, beset with many dangers. Each day we must ask that Almighty God will set and keep His protecting hand over us so that we may pass on to those who come after us the heritage of a free people, secure in their God-given rights and in full control of a Government dedicated to the preservation of those rights ... #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Battleground quotes by Grace Callaway
#21. The black devil and the blue devil: that was how he'd come to think of the two opposing sides of his nature. Since his early adolescence, the bloodthirsty pair had staked his mind as their battleground, and even now he could feel their presence, lurking, waiting to make their next move. #Quote by Grace Callaway
Battleground quotes by Anonymous
#22. A big move into the "internet of things", the next big battleground between dominant technology groups. #Quote by Anonymous
Battleground quotes by John F. Kennedy
#23. The great battleground for the defense and expansion of freedom today is the whole southern half of the globe ... the lands of the rising peoples. Their revolution is the greatest in human history. They seek an end to injustice, tyranny and exploitation. More than an end, they seek a beginning. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Battleground quotes by Jay Conrad Levinson
#24. Guerrilla marketing requires you to comprehend every facet of marketing, experiment with many of them, winnow out the losers, double up on the winners, and then use the marketing tactics that prove themselves to you in the battleground of real life. #Quote by Jay Conrad Levinson
Battleground quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#25. Artistic temperament sometimes seems a battleground, a dark angel of destruction and a bright angel of creativity wrestling. #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Battleground quotes by Harlan Coben
#26. I live in the suburbs, the final battleground of the American dream, where people get married and have kids and try to scratch out a happy life for themselves. #Quote by Harlan Coben
Battleground quotes by David Wong
#27. My mind didn't clear. It had been clear before. Instead it muddled, suddenly ablaze with rioting factions of insecurities and dreams, a cacophonous battleground of conflicting moral codes and dogma. I was, therefore, back to normal. #Quote by David Wong
Battleground quotes by Tony Curl
#28. True innovation and disruption happens outside of the accepted playing field, outside of the court, outside of the battleground. Disrupruption breaches the field and changes the game. #Quote by Tony Curl
Battleground quotes by Steve Sabol
#29. Look at a football field. It looks like a big movie screen. This is theatre. Football combines the strategy of chess. It's part ballet. It's part battleground, part playground. We clarify, amplify and glorify the game with our footage, the narration and that music, and in the end create an inspirational piece of footage. #Quote by Steve Sabol
Battleground quotes by Clinton Heylin
#30. If the early English and LA punk bands shared a common sound, the New York bands just shared the same clubs. As such, while the English scene never became known as the '100 Club' sound, CBGBs was the solitary common component in the New York bands' development, transcended once they had outgrown the need to play the club. Even their supposed musical heritage was not exactly common -- the Ramones preferring the Dolls/Stooges to Television's Velvets/Coltrane to Blondie's Stones/Brit-Rock. Though the scene had been built up as a single movement, when commercial implications began to sink in, the differences that separated the bands became far more important than the similarities which had previously bound them together.
In the two years following the summer 1975 festival, CBGBs had become something of an ideological battleground, if not between the bands then between their critical proponents. The divisions between a dozen bands, all playing the same club, all suffering the same hardships, all sharing the same love of certain central bands in the history of rock & roll, should not have been that great. But the small scene very quickly partitioned into art-rockers and exponents of a pure let's-rock aesthetic. #Quote by Clinton Heylin
Battleground quotes by Patrick J. Kennedy
#31. The key battleground in the war on terrorism, therefore, is in the minds of the American public. #Quote by Patrick J. Kennedy
Battleground quotes by Emma Woolf
#32. People, especially women, are judged on their bodies. And food, far from being a source of energy and enjoyment, becomes a battleground of guilt and shame and excess and deprivation. Everywhere we look, success and sexiness and happiness seem to belong to the thin. #Quote by Emma Woolf
Battleground quotes by Jennifer Weiner
#33. They wouldn't have believed me, and if they had they would have wanted me to explain.
And I had no explanation, no answers. When you're on a battleground, you don't have the
luxury of time to dwell on the various historical factors and sociopolitical influences that caused the war.
You just keep your head down and try to survive it, to shove the pages back in the book, close
the covers and pretend that nothing's broken, nothing's wrong. #Quote by Jennifer Weiner
Battleground quotes by Billy Graham
#34. God promises no easy life or days without troubles, trials, difficulties, and temptations. He never promises that life will be perfect. He does not call His children to a playground, but to a battleground. #Quote by Billy Graham
Battleground quotes by Wilfrid Sheed
#35. As things now stand, the office is a slightly meaner battleground than the home. Male bosses seem to dominate their women underlings as they would never dominate their wives. #Quote by Wilfrid Sheed
Battleground quotes by Feisal Abdul Rauf
#36. The battleground has been moderates of all faith traditions in all the countries of the world against the radicals of all faith traditions in all parts of the world. #Quote by Feisal Abdul Rauf
Battleground quotes by Samuel Fuller
#37. A film is like a battleground. It's love, hate, action, violence, death - In one word, emotions. #Quote by Samuel Fuller
Battleground quotes by Ayn Rand
#38. They have taught man that he is a hopeless misfit made of two elements, both symbols of death. A body without a soul is a corpse, a soul without a body is a ghost- yet such is their image of man's nature: the battleground of a struggle between a corpse and a ghost, (john Galt) #Quote by Ayn Rand
Battleground quotes by D.S. Quinio
#39. (As to how the Gatekeeper came to life)

Once a bookworm, always a bookworm.

But inspiration starts once that lowly worm crawls up your brain; it would be too difficult to contain and all hell breaks loose, and that otherwise blank piece of paper becomes its battleground, teeming with chicken-scratch scribbles of what was going on in that nook that used to be your secret sanctuary. You have no choice but just to concede, and surrender to its call to breathe life into a name. #Quote by D.S. Quinio
Battleground quotes by Stephen Richards
#40. Barlinnie Prison stands on dark and bloody ground. It is a temple of lost souls, and a place of living nightmares. It's been the breaker of many a man's dreams for more than a century. This prison works to a model of penitence with no pretence of rehabilitation. The criminal population that society has forsaken has filled this once, seemingly, bottomless pit to overflowing with their despair and nightmares of pain. More specifically, it is the battleground of an undeclared war that still ravages to this day, between the screws and the cons. The screws, backed by their authority, would use violence, but in return the prisoners would have to resort to their cunning, beguile, and the odd sudden act of violence. #Quote by Stephen Richards
Battleground quotes by Pushpa Rana
#41. Soon you shall be landing In the battleground, ensure you have the right weapons to fight the enemy; ensure you know your enemy and what he is capable of; take them unprepared to gain the victory and stand with your head held high; show it to the world the cause you have been fighting for, deception is the key, challenge your enemy when it is least expected; break them mentally before breaking them physically. You are a soldier; your enemy is a soldier and you are facing the best, both sides have a lot of similarities only variation lies in the cause.

Cause is driver for the battle; cause is binding comrades together and even if the victory is gained the cause stays undefeated. You stand defeated for your strategy, tactics and leaders but never for the cause, it's still alive, it shall always be alive with the men who have sacrificed their lives, with the men who are still alive. They stand defeated with the physical strength but not for the cause they have believed in and you can never take it away from them. Fight for a cause and you shall stay invincible.

A war story is always biased towards one side and it's hard to narrate a true war story. We choose and make our heroes from what we have read, heard and believed in. If we know the cause both sides are standing for, it will become difficult to take sides. Always respect your enemy, respect for the fact they are standing neck to neck with you, respect them for the courage they have shown to defend th #Quote by Pushpa Rana
Battleground quotes by Martin J. Dougherty
#42. It may seem from a cursory look at the news that the streets are a battleground, a deadly arena of fists, guns and knives. In fact armed attacks are not at all common, though they are serious enough to merit attention when they do happen. Lesser levels of violent assault are more frequent, but even these are not as likely as many people think.
The perception of constant street violence derives mainly from the fact that it gets reported while its absence does not. Headlines like 'nobody got stabbed today' would not sell a lot of newspapers, so we are told about incidents that do happen and never hear about the millions of people who go about their business unharmed. To illustrate that, look at this page. The words stand out but there is a lot more white space between and around them. You do not notice it because it is not brought to your attention. So it is with violence - a lot more people do not encounter violence than do. #Quote by Martin J. Dougherty
Battleground quotes by Ed Stetzer
#43. Global evangelism does not take place in a demilitarized zone but on the battleground of spiritual warfare. Satan, in vengeance and jealousy for that which belongs to God, is deceiving the nations and holding them in bondage to a lie. #Quote by Ed Stetzer
Battleground quotes by Ana Gasteyer
#44. I'm friends with a lot of actresses, but my 'SNL' friends are my closest. The experience of working there is something of a battleground, a great one, but complicated. I think there's a deep connection for having survived that workplace. #Quote by Ana Gasteyer
Battleground quotes by David Brooks
#45. Moderation is based on the idea that things do not fit neatly together. Politics is likely to be a competition between legitimate opposing interests. Philosophy is likely to be a tension between competing half truths. A personality is likely to be a battleground of valuable but incompatible traits. #Quote by David Brooks
Battleground quotes by Tite Kubo
#46. As we approach the crucial battleground, believe that our blades will not shatter.
Believe that our resolve will not weaken.
Though our paths may diverge, our iron hearts remain together.
Swear, that though the land itself may break asunder...We will come back alive! ~Renji Abarai #Quote by Tite Kubo
Battleground quotes by Samuel Fuller
#47. Film is a battleground. Love, hate, violence, action, death ... In a word, emotion. #Quote by Samuel Fuller
Battleground quotes by Stewart Udall
#48. Utah today remains a battleground for land-use policies. #Quote by Stewart Udall

Battleground quotes by Keira Knightley
#50. I've had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it's paparazzi photographers or for film posters. [The topless Interview shoot] was one of the ones where I said: 'OK, I'm fine doing the topless shot so long as you don't make them any bigger or retouch.' Because it does feel important to say it really doesn't matter what shape you are. I think women's bodies are a battleground, and photography is partly to blame. Our society is so photographic now, it becomes more difficult to see all of those different varieties of shape. #Quote by Keira Knightley
Battleground quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#51. Beauty is not only a terrible thing, it is also a mysterious thing. There God and the Devil strive for mastery, and the battleground is the heart of men. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Battleground quotes by Jessica Valenti
#52. The purpose of the word "slut" is: controlling women through shame and humiliation. Women's bodies are always the ones that are being vied over for control - whether it's rape, reproductive rights, or violence against women, it's our bodies that are the battleground, not men's. #Quote by Jessica Valenti
Battleground quotes by Anthony Carmona
#53. Social media websites are no longer performing an envisaged function of creating a positive communication link among friends, family and professionals. It is a veritable battleground, where insults fly from the human quiver, damaging lives, destroying self-esteem and a person's sense of self-worth. #Quote by Anthony Carmona
Battleground quotes by Pamela Clare
#54. For so long, my body has been a battleground. I want to get closer to you, but I don't know how. #Quote by Pamela Clare
Battleground quotes by Emily Lloyd-Jones
#55. For a moment, he considered telling her. Of every night he spent in wakefulness, of how he never quite dreamed of his family, of how his body felt more a battleground than a sanctuary, and of how he did not know who he was - but only that he wanted to be someone. #Quote by Emily Lloyd-Jones
Battleground quotes by Bill Vaughan
#56. I want to be the first to bless you on what God has blessed you with - fighting in the heart of the Muslim world that was a battleground for large historic Islamic wars and what is now the place of Islam's greatest war in the present era. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Battleground quotes by Paul Monette
#57. It would take me the better part of growing up to understand that intimacy, more than sex or even sexual orientation, was the universal battleground, and no easier for straight than gay. #Quote by Paul Monette
Battleground quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#58. Spiritual Christians look upon the world not as a playground but as a battleground. #Quote by Aiden Wilson Tozer
Battleground quotes by Knut Hamsun
#59. I was conscious all the time that I was following mad whims without being able to do anything about it ... . Despite my alienation from myself at that moment, and even though I was nothing but a battleground for invisible forces, I was aware of every detail of what was going on around me. #Quote by Knut Hamsun
Battleground quotes by Philip Treacy
#60. Shopping can be a nightmare - first finding something to wear and then finding something to go with it, it's so difficult when there's so much choice. It can feel like entering a battleground. #Quote by Philip Treacy
Battleground quotes by Edward Snowden
#61. The public don't want to authorize the internet to become a battleground. We need to do everything we can as a society to keep that a neutral zone, to keep that an economic zone that can reflect our values, both politically, socially, and economically. #Quote by Edward Snowden
Battleground quotes by Tom Robbins
#62. You've remained on the battleground, center stage, experiencing life and, what's more important, experiencing yourself experiencing it. You haven't been reduced to a logistical strategy for somebody else's life-war. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Battleground quotes by David Cheriton
#63. There is something about military history that fascinates me. You find that many battles have been lost by people with very good military background when they fought battles in a battleground they didn't understand. I have seen that in business, too. You have to look at a marketplace like a battle-ground. #Quote by David Cheriton
Battleground quotes by Paul Ham
#64. Respected political and military leaders saw the world as a Darwinian battleground, where the fittest race would emerge triumphant from a savage fight to the death. #Quote by Paul Ham
Battleground quotes by Hermann Hesse
#65. That is just what life is when it is beautiful and happy - a game! Naturally, one can also do all kinds of other things with it, make a duty of it, or a battleground, or a prison, but that does not make it any prettier. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Battleground quotes by Barbara Boswell Brunner
#66. Where they differ is in temper. Izzy has no control over hers. When the anger switch flips in her tiny little brain, no one can turn it off. She is focused to a fault, her tantrums often triggered by the fear of her sightless world. Morgan sighs. She is ready to be released. She quiets easily and quickly. She is a gentle giant, not a fighter. She bites only to defend herself. If her intent were to eliminate her assailant, it would happen in one quick snap of her jaw. She cannot understand why this monster was brought into our peaceful home. We were a happy family until Izzy appeared. She is the Anti-Christ. She is pure evil. Our home has become a salient battleground with opponents always vigilant, wary of the other, waiting for the first sign of war. Finally, #Quote by Barbara Boswell Brunner
Battleground quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#67. I wonder if men find it easier than women do to consider people not as bodies, as lives, but as numbers, figures, toys of the mind to be pushed about a battleground of the mind. This disembodiment gives pleasure, exciting them and freeing them to act for the sake of acting, for the sake of manipulating the figures, the game pieces. Love of country, or honor, or freedom, then, may be names they give that pleasure to justify it to the gods and to the people who suffer and kill and die in the game. So those words - love, honor, freedom - are degraded from their true sense. Then people may come to hold them in contempt as meaningless, and poets must struggle to give them back their truth. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Battleground quotes by Charles Stross
#68. Contract law is essentially a defensive scorched-earth battleground where the constant question is, if my business partner was possessed by a brain-eating monster from beyond spacetime tomorrow, what is the worst thing they could do to me? #Quote by Charles Stross
Battleground quotes by Ocean Vuong
#69. But why can't the language for creativity be the language of regeneration? You killed that poem, we say. You're a killer. You came into that novel guns blazing. I am hammering this paragraph, I am banging them out, we say. I owned that workshop. I shut it down. I crushed them. We smashed the competition. I'm wrestling with the muse. The state, where people live, is a battleground state. The audience a target audience. "Good for you, man" a man once said to me at a party, "you're making a killing with poetry. You're knockin' em dead. #Quote by Ocean Vuong
Battleground quotes by Gloria E Anzaldua
#70. In the Borderlands

you are the battleground

where enemies are kin to each other;

you are at home, a stranger,

the border disputes have been settled

the volley of shots have scattered the truce

you are wounded, lost in action

dead, fighting back; #Quote by Gloria E Anzaldua
Battleground quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#71. Remember, the conventional wisdom is, "Yeah, you can do this like [Donald] Trump has done it during the primaries, buuuut once you get to the general, it's not about national votes. It's about states! It's about swing states. It's about battleground states. And you've gotta have targeted expenditures, great ads running against your opponent in those swing states." #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
