Blitz War quotes by Harold Pinter
#1. I was brought up in the War. I was an adolescent in the Second World War. And I did witness in London a great deal of the Blitz. #Quote by Harold Pinter
Blitz War quotes by Wesley W. Yale
#2. Most blitz leaders have felt that by sacrificing a degree of intelligence or logistics support they gained a greater advantage in the areas of surprise or massing of effort at a critical point. No commander attacks unless he feels that he can win, though on occasion defeat locally may help to gain victory elsewhere. But the decision to attack means that the factors have all been weighed and that superiority lies in better morale, better control for the massing of effort or for quicker reaction, or better weapons. Control is often a more than adequate substitute for supply. There may be risk, but there is no rashness, where advantages outweigh disadvantages. #Quote by Wesley W. Yale
Blitz War quotes by Sy Montgomery
#3. Laos is saddled with the distinction of one superlative: it is the most heavily bombed country on earth. During the nine-year secret war against the Communists, during the Vietnam War, the U. S. dropped 6,300,000 tons of bombs on Indochina, about 1/3 of which fell on Laos. It was the heaviest aerial bombardment in the history of warfare. During the 1960s and 1970s, the U.S. rained more bombs on Laos than were dropped on Nazi Germany during World War II -- three times the tonnage dropped during the Korean War -- the equivalent of a plane load of bombs every 8 minutes around the clock for 9 years. #Quote by Sy Montgomery
Blitz War quotes by Colin Powell
#4. I want to scare the hell out of the rest of the world. #Quote by Colin Powell
Blitz War quotes by Horatio Alger
#5. Thus the castle of each feudal chieftain became a school of chivalry, into which any noble youth, whose parents were from poverty unable to educate him to the art of war, was readily received. #Quote by Horatio Alger
Blitz War quotes by Jonathan Raymond
#6. The debate analysis in the media is rampant with contest analogies of war, baseball, boxing, football; you name it. Any testosterone contest imaginable is fair game. #Quote by Jonathan Raymond
Blitz War quotes by Bruce Catton
#7. Bear in mind, now, that most of this work was done by men who had no intention whatever, when they enlisted, of making war to end slavery. Slavery was killed by the act of war itself. It was the one human institution on all the earth which could not possibly be defended by force of arms, because that force, once called into play, was bound to destroy it. The Union armies which ended slavery were led by men like Grant and Sherman, who had profound sympathies with the South and who had never in their lives shown the slightest sympathies with the abolitionists. But they were also men who believed in the one great, fearful fact about modern war
that when you get into it, the guiding rule is that you have to win it. #Quote by Bruce Catton
Blitz War quotes by L.J.Smith
#8. War and hunting and chasing-that's all there is. That's life, Jenny-no one can escape it. #Quote by L.J.Smith
Blitz War quotes by John Gibler
#9. The world of global drug production, shipping distribution, sales, and consumption is too complex, however, to be understood in any single us-and-them story. #Quote by John Gibler
Blitz War quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#10. Of all the questions which can come before this nation, short of the actual preservation of its existence in a great war, there is none which compares in importance with the great central task of leaving this land even a better land for our descendants than it is for us. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Blitz War quotes by Mark Kennedy
#11. We must continue to work hard on the federal level, to make sure that our local law enforcement and communities have the tools and resources they need to fight this war against methamphetamine, and keep our kids safe. #Quote by Mark Kennedy
Blitz War quotes by Kumari Jayawardena
#12. Women are the victims of war ... as widows they've faced the trauma of being single parents and livelihoods of families are affected. A lot of gender-related problems come up in terms of health, education, domestic violence, etc. #Quote by Kumari Jayawardena
Blitz War quotes by Cornel West
#13. I'm not a pacifist at all; I think there is a notion of "just war" that can be persuasively argued. I think in the face of Nazis, in the face of apartheid, that I would have joined those armies. But that's the last, last resort. #Quote by Cornel West
Blitz War quotes by Ramez Naam
#14. To understand the future course of this war, one need only look at the history of the War on Drugs and the War on Terror. Like those two manufactured "wars", this one will be never-ending, freedom-destroying, counterproductive, and ultimately understood to have caused far more damage than the supposed threat it was aimed at ever could have. #Quote by Ramez Naam
Blitz War quotes by Kylie Chan
#15. The Serpent's eyes are glazed and cloudy; it cannot die from heat or thirst. Nobody has come in weeks, it is alone. Death's release it out of reach.

The Turtle's head is full of war; it studies the time streams, planning defence. The streams all merge and gather at a place that spells defeat. #Quote by Kylie Chan
Blitz War quotes by Luis J Rodriguez
#16. We need more leaders among our gente - more teachers, politicians, businesspeople, organizers, and such. Turn the energy that many young people are putting into "war" and "death" and put it into life and true justice. #Quote by Luis J Rodriguez
Blitz War quotes by Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus
#17. If you want peace, prepare for the war. #Quote by Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus

#18. We are determined that before the sun sets on this terrible struggle, Our Flag will be recognized throughout the World as a symbol of Freedom on the one hand and of overwhelming force on the other. #Quote by George C. Marshall
Blitz War quotes by Tom Waits
#19. I'm interested in things when I don't know what they are. Like "Hey, Ray, what the hell is this?" Oh, that's lipstick from the 1700s, that's dog food from the turn of the century, that's a hat from World War II. I'm interested in the minutiae of things. Oddities. #Quote by Tom Waits
Blitz War quotes by Claudio Magris
#20. The courage to put an end to war, to see the abysmal stupidity of it, is certainly no less than that needed to start one. #Quote by Claudio Magris
Blitz War quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#21. Courage will now be your best defence against the storm that is at hand- - that and such hope as I bring. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Blitz War quotes by Zoran Drvenkar
#22. In the winter you could see them sitting on the benches by the war memorial. The cold couldn't touch them in those days. They drank mulled wine from thermos flasks and smoked their cigarettes hastily, as if they might warm them up. Tamara doesn't know when the cold took hold of them. They feel it much more quickly now, the whine more, and if anyone asks them why, they reply that the world is getting colder and colder. They could also answer that they'd got older, but that would be too honest, you don't say that until you're forty and you can look back. In your late twenties you go through your very private climate disaster and hope for better times. #Quote by Zoran Drvenkar
Blitz War quotes by Krishna Udayasankar
#23. … the greatest mystery, the greatest wonder of creation is that we are capable of both relentless reason and boundless love ... It is not about what we are, but what we can become.
– Govinda Shauri #Quote by Krishna Udayasankar
Blitz War quotes by Elihu Root
#24. The point of departure of the process to which we wish to contribute is the fact that war is the natural reaction of human nature in the savage state, while peace is the result of acquired characteristics. #Quote by Elihu Root
Blitz War quotes by Josh Peck
#25. I'm not built for war. I'm built for entertainment. I'm built for jokes - either telling them or being the butt of them. #Quote by Josh Peck
Blitz War quotes by Greg Boyle
#26. To embrace the strategy of Jesus is to be engaged in what Dean Brackley calls "downward mobility." Our locating ourselves with those who have been endlessly excluded becomes an act of visible protest. For no amount of our screaming at the people in charge to change things can change them. The margins don't get erased by simply insisting that the powers-that-be erase them. The trickle-down theory doesn't really work here. The powers bent on waging war against the poor and the young and the "other" will only be moved to kinship when they observe it. Only when we can see a community where the outcast is valued and appreciated will we abandon the values that seek to exclude. #Quote by Greg Boyle
Blitz War quotes by Peter Kuznick
#27. We have seen enough of war to know that it doesn't work to resolve conflicts. It only exacerbates them. It is time we find other solutions and dedicate ourselves to life-not death. #Quote by Peter Kuznick
Blitz War quotes by John Dear
#28. Catastrophic climate change is the natural consequence of global systemic violence. That means, it is intimately connected with racism, sexism, classism, militarism, war, nuclear weapons, and every form of violence. If we want to deepen our nonviolence and our conscious oneness with the earth, we have to connect the various facets of systemic violence with environmental destruction so we know what we are up against, what we are resisting, and how broad out creative nonviolence needs to go. #Quote by John Dear
Blitz War quotes by Wilfred Owen
#29. Escape? There is one unwatched way: your eyes. O Beauty! Keep me good that secret gate. #Quote by Wilfred Owen
Blitz War quotes by Jasper Fforde
#30. Said by Colin the dragon:
It's somewhat bizarre to learn that many of you (humans)think that other humans are somehow different enough to be hated and killed, when in reality you're all all tiresomely similiar in outlook, needs and motivation, and differ only by peculiar habits, generally shaped by geographical circumstance. #Quote by Jasper Fforde
Blitz War quotes by Austin, Lynn
#31. she could begin again and not become so entangled in this long, horrible war, would she watch from the sidelines as a spectator this time? Would she choose differently, take fewer risks? Caroline #Quote by Austin, Lynn
Blitz War quotes by Barney Frank
#32. I should have voted for the first Iraq war. George Bush did that one very well. I had been skeptical. I was afraid that George Bush was going to treat the first Iraq war the way his son treated the second. #Quote by Barney Frank
Blitz War quotes by Barry Pepper
#33. Be not that far from me, for trouble is near; haste Thee to help me. Blessed be the Lord my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight. My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me. O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me #Quote by Barry Pepper
Blitz War quotes by Cat Winters
#34. The head makes war, but the heart makes peace. And, thankfully, the heart ends up ruling more than not. #Quote by Cat Winters
Blitz War quotes by Oche Otorkpa
#35. If young people are our greatest asset in a war that must be won then we
must be willing to extricate them at whatever cost from the clutches
of those who seek to exploit their weaknesses #Quote by Oche Otorkpa
Blitz War quotes by John Brisben Walker
#36. As a peace machine, it's value to the world will be beyond computation. Would a declaration of war between Russia and Japan be made, if within an hour there after a swifty gliding aeroplane might take its flight from St Petersburg and drop half a ton of dynamite above the enemy's war offices? Could any nation afford to war upon any other with such hazards in view? #Quote by John Brisben Walker
Blitz War quotes by Pete Hegseth
#37. Peace through strength works; but the flip side is war invited by weakness. #Quote by Pete Hegseth
Blitz War quotes by Evan Wright
#38. Get some! expresses in two simple words the excitement, fear, feelings of power and the erotic-tinged thrill that come from confronting the extreme physical and emotional challenges posed by death, which is, of course, what war is all about. #Quote by Evan Wright
Blitz War quotes by Peter R. Mansoor
#39. The emphasis on technology over an understanding of the realities of war and conflict reflect[s] the ahistoricism not only of too much of the U.S. military officer corps, but of the American educational system as well. Our mistakes in Iraq and Afghanistan were the result of a pervasive failure to understand the historical framework within which insurgencies take place, to appreciate the cultural and political factors of other nations and people, and to encourage the learning of foreign languages. In other words, in Afghanistan and Iraq we managed to repeat many of the mistakes we made in Vietnam, because America's political and military leaders managed to forget nearly every lesson of that conflict. #Quote by Peter R. Mansoor
