Price Of War quotes by Vladislav Tamarov

Price Of War quotes by John Jay

Price Of War quotes by Donald Trump
#3. I wasn't a politician. I had no - no - even thought of being a politician. So, nobody even talked to me about the war. Nobody said, should we do the war, should we not? It's not like now, where every day you're being asked questions about things. #Quote by Donald Trump
Price Of War quotes by Ernst Junger
#4. Fraternity means that the father no longer sacrifices the sons; instead the brothers kill one another. Wars between nations have been replaced by civil war. The great settling of accounts, first under national 'pretexts,' led to a rapidly escalating world civil war. #Quote by Ernst Junger
Price Of War quotes by Steve Rogers, Captain America
#5. The price of freedom is high, it always has been. And it's a price I'm willing to pay. And if I'm the only one, then so be it. #Quote by Steve Rogers, Captain America
Price Of War quotes by Henry Kissinger
#6. The basic premise of collective security was that all nations would view every threat to security in the same way and be prepared to run the same risks in resisting it. Not only had nothing like it ever actually occurred, nothing like it was destined to occur in the entire history of both the League of Nations and the United Nations. Only when a threat is truly overwhelming and genuinely affects all, or most, societies is such a consensus possible - as it was during the two world wars and, on a regional basis, in the Cold War. But in the vast majority of cases - and in nearly all of the difficult ones - the nations of the world tend to disagree either about the nature of the threat or about the type of sacrifice they are prepared to make to meet it. #Quote by Henry Kissinger
Price Of War quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#7. War is no longer made by simply analyzed economic forces if it ever was. War is made or planned now by individual men, demagogues and dictators who play on the patriotism of their people to mislead them into a belief in the great fallacy of war when all their vaunted reforms have failed to satisfy the people they misrule. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Price Of War quotes by Joanne Harris
#8. From this I think we can all conclude that the cow was the primary instigator of everything that followed - war, Tribulation, the End of the Worlds. Lesson One: never trust a rumiant. #Quote by Joanne Harris
Price Of War quotes by Alberto Manguel
#9. Old or new, the only sign I always try to rid my books of (usually with little success) is the price-sticker that malignant booksellers attach to the backs. These evil white scabs rip off with difficulty, leaving leprous wounds and traces of slime to which adhere the dust and fluff of ages, making me wish for a special gummy hell to which the inventor of these stickers would be condemned. #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Price Of War quotes by Chinua Achebe
#10. Only the story can continue beyond the war and the warrior. The story outlives the sound of the war drum ... The story is our escort. Without it we are blind ... It is the thing that sets us apart from cattle ... #Quote by Chinua Achebe
Price Of War quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#11. As for national greatness: It is probably true that all nations are great and even holy at the time of death. The Biafrans had never fought before. They fought well this time. They will never fight again. They will never play Finlandia on an ancient marimba again. Peace. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Price Of War quotes by James Carlos Blake
#12. The family landed in the Western Hemisphere in the person of Roger Blake Wolfe, who arrived with a price on his head. #Quote by James Carlos Blake
Price Of War quotes by Cornel West
#13. We're talking about a prison-industrial complex. We're talking about a war on drugs that's generating unprecedented levels of incarcerated folk. We're talking about dilapidated housing. We're talking about joblessness and underemployment. #Quote by Cornel West
Price Of War quotes by Alfred Marshall
#14. The price of every thing rises and falls from time to time and place to place; and with every such change the purchasing power of money changes so far as that thing goes. #Quote by Alfred Marshall
Price Of War quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#15. Some people wouldn't see a traitor when they looked at me. Some people would see a survivor. Call me anything you like - I sleep fine at night. But you will look at me when you say it. Or I'll get so far in your face you'll be seeing me with your eyes closed. You'll be seeing me in your nightmares. I'll scorch myself on the backs of your eyelids. Get off my back and stay off it. I'm not the woman I used to be. If you want a war with me, you'll get one. Just try me. Give me an excuse to go play in that dark place inside my head. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Price Of War quotes by Hans Rosling
#16. What I'm really worried about is war. Will the former rich countries really accept a completely changed world economy, and a shift of power away from where it has been the last 50 to 100 to 150 years, back to Asia? #Quote by Hans Rosling
Price Of War quotes by Thomas De Quincey
#17. Either the human being must suffer and struggle as the price of a more searching vision, or his gaze must be shallow and without intellectual revelation. #Quote by Thomas De Quincey
Price Of War quotes by Sebastian Junger
#18. Shared public meaning gives soldiers a context for their losses and their sacrifice that is acknowledged by most of the society. That helps keep at bay the sense of futility and rage that can develop among soldiers during a war that doesn't seem to end. Such public meaning is probably not generated by the kinds of formulaic phrases, such as "Thank you for your service," that many Americans now feel compelled to offer soldiers and vets. Neither is it generated by honoring vets at sporting events, allowing them to board planes first, or giving them minor discounts at stores. If anything, these token acts only deepen the chasm between the military and civilian populations by highlighting the fact that some people serve their country but the vast majority don't. In Israel, where around half of the population serves in the military, reflexively thanking someone for their service makes as little sense as thanking them for paying their taxes. It doesn't cross anyone's mind. #Quote by Sebastian Junger
Price Of War quotes by Edward S. Greenberg
#19. It is no accident, then, that each of our major wars has served to enhance the power of government in Washington: the Civil War, World Wars I and II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. #Quote by Edward S. Greenberg
Price Of War quotes by Kristen Ashley
#20. Toasted almond pancakes. Sweet soft 'okays'. Makin' me laugh more in a few weeks than I have in decades. 'Yes, Daddys' I feel in my dick. The first voicemail you left me, babe. I saved it and I listen to it once a day. If I lose focus, I see you on your back, knees high, legs wide, offering your sweet, wet pussy to me. You smile at me in bed every time you wander outta my bedroom in my shirts, my tees, or your work clothes and honest to Christ, it sets me up for the day. And no matter what shit goes down, I get through it knowin' whichever bed I climb into at night, you're in it ready to snuggle into me or give me what I wanna take. Your girl, a headache. You, never. And in a life that's been full of headaches, babe, having that, there is no price tag. You gotta get it and do it fuckin' now that there's a lotta different kinds of give and take. And you give as good as you get, baby, trust me. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Price Of War quotes by Luke Harding
#21. Two decades after communism and the alleged end of the Cold War, Russia is still a cash economy. The preferred currency is dollars, though euros are also acceptable. #Quote by Luke Harding
Price Of War quotes by Jay Leno
#22. President Bush spoke with the Amish. He didn't want to, but it was the only group he could find that wasn't upset about the high price of gas. #Quote by Jay Leno
Price Of War quotes by Ann Druyan
#23. Well, I actually grew up in the sixties. I feel very lucky, actually, that that was my slice of time that I was dealt. Let's remember that the real motivation in the sixties, and even in the fifties, was the Cold War. #Quote by Ann Druyan
Price Of War quotes by Mark Twain
#24. There has never been a just [war], never an honorable one--on the part of the instigator of the war. I can see a million years ahead, and this rule will never change in so many as half a dozen instances. The loud little handful--as usual--will shout for the war. The pulpit will--warily and cautiously--object--at first; the great, big, dull bulk of the nation will rub its sleepy eyes and try to make out why there should be a war, and will say, earnestly and indignantly, 'It is unjust and dishonorable, and there is no necessity for it.' Then the handful will shout louder. A few fair men on the other side will argue and reason against the war with speech and pen, and at first will have a hearing and be applauded; but it will not last long; those others will outshout them, and presently the anti-war audiences will thin out and lose popularity. Before long you will see this curious thing: the speakers stoned from the platform, and free speech strangled by hordes of furious men who in their secret hearts are still at one with those stoned speakers--as earlier--but do not dare say so. And now the whole nation--pulpit and all--will take up the war-cry, and shout itself hoarse, and mob any honest man who ventures to open his mouth; and presently such mouths will cease to open. Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to exa #Quote by Mark Twain
Price Of War quotes by Patricia Bracewell
#25. As Norman bride and English queen she would walk a fine line between the interests of two rulers -- her brother and her lord. Both men would demand her fealty. One, at least, would exact a heavy price if she were to prove disloyal. #Quote by Patricia Bracewell
Price Of War quotes by Seanan McGuire
#26. Sometimes I think Faerie goes to war as much because we can't find anyone who'd rather talk things out as for any other reason. Diplomacy is not a valued skill among the Courts. Most of our nobles would prefer to do the dance of manners and then slide a knife between someone's ribs. It's more fun than actually discussing trade sanctions and why it's rude to kill your neighbors. #Quote by Seanan McGuire
Price Of War quotes by Douglas Hurd
#27. War on Iraq runs the risk of turning the Middle East into an inexhaustible recruiting ground for anti- western terrorism. #Quote by Douglas Hurd
Price Of War quotes by T Bone Burnett
#28. You know, the thing that struck me about Civil War music was how bloody it was; it was full of hatred. There was incredible vitriol in it. #Quote by T Bone Burnett
Price Of War quotes by Walter Moers
#29. Approaching the forest from the west was no army, but a delegation of Grailsundanian master surgeons on their way to an appendix conference ... But that isn't the craziest part of the story - oh, no, my boy, for approaching from the east was a party of itinerant watchmakers bound for the pocket-watch fair at Wimbleton ... But not even that is the craziest part of the story! For apporaching from the south were over a hundred armourers and locksmiths on their way to Florinth, where some power-hungry prince had commissioned them to build a monstrous war machine ... Well, that would be enough crazy coincedences for an averagely crazy story but the battle of Nurn Forest involved the most improbable coincedences in the history of Zamonia. For entering the forest, this time from the north came a delegation of alchemists. #Quote by Walter Moers
Price Of War quotes by Sean Price
#30. Wake up: all of that 'crack in the street' talk?
It's made up, like 'Jack and the Beanstalk.' #Quote by Sean Price
Price Of War quotes by Bill Bryson
#31. Now as I stood on the roof of my house, taking in this unexpected view, it struck me how rather glorious it was that in two thousand years of human activity the only thing that had stirred the notice of the outside world even briefly was the finding of a Roman phallic pendant. The rest was just centuries of people quietly going about their daily business - eating, sleeping, having sex, endeavoring to be amused- and it occurred to me, with the forcefulness of a thought experienced in 360 degrees, that that's really what history mostly is: masses of people doing ordinary things. Even Einstein will have spent large parts of his life thinking about his holidays o new hammock or how dainty was the ankle on the young lady alighting from the tram across the street. These are the sort of things that fill our life and thoughts, and yet we treat them as incidental and hardly worthy of serious consideration. I don't know how many hours of my school years were spent considering the Missouri Compromise or the War of the Roses, but it was vastly more than I was ever encouraged or allowed to give to the history of eating. sleeping, having sex and endeavoring to be amused. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Price Of War quotes by Dennis Miller
#32. I'll say this about the war protesters: At least most of them are only putting duct tape across their mouths so I can still tell the rest of them to blow it out their ass. #Quote by Dennis Miller
Price Of War quotes by A.J.P. Taylor
#33. The God of Battles will throw the dice that decide ... #Quote by A.J.P. Taylor
Price Of War quotes by Katie Price
#34. I really hate sitcoms on television with canned laughter and stuff. What really makes me laugh is the real-life stuff. I've got a dry sense of humor. #Quote by Katie Price
Price Of War quotes by Ray Bradbury
#35. We're going to meet a lot of lonely people in the next week and the next month and the next year. And when they ask us what we're doing, you can say, We're remembering. That's where we'll win out in the long run. And someday we'll remember so much that we'll build the biggest goddamn steamshovel in history and dig the biggest grave of all time and shove war in it and cover it up. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Price Of War quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#36. Nothing on this earth is worth
buying at the price of human blood. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Price Of War quotes by Steven Moffat
#37. Madame Kovarian: The anger of a good man is not a problem. Good men have too many rules.
The Doctor: Good men don't need rules. Today is not the day to find out why I have so many. #Quote by Steven Moffat
