War Relief quotes by Vladimir Lenin
#1. The war is relentless: it puts the alternative in a ruthless relief. #Quote by Vladimir Lenin
War Relief quotes by James S.A. Corey
#2. The messages coming back flooded the comm buffers with rage and sorrow, threats of vengeance and offers of aid. Those last were the hardest. New colonies still trying to force their way into local ecosystems so exotic that their bodies could hardly recognize them as life at all, isolated, exhausted, sometimes at the edge of their resources. And what they wanted was to send back help. He listened to their voices, saw the distress in their eyes. He couldn't help, but love them a little bit.

Under the best conditions, disasters and plagues did that. It wasn't universally true. There would always be hoarders and price gouging, people who closed their doors to refugees and left them freezing and starving. But the impulse to help was there too. To carry a burden together, even if it meant having less for yourself. Humanity had come as far as it had in a haze of war, sickness, violence, and genocide. History was drenched in blood. But it also had cooperation and kindness, generosity, intermarriage. The one didn't come without the other. #Quote by James S.A. Corey
War Relief quotes by Elliott Colla
#3. Just as certain Cold War binaries were collapsing, new binaries of Sunni versus Shia or Arab versus Kurd were being created by the new occupation force. It's the corruption of that moment that I am really interested in. #Quote by Elliott Colla
War Relief quotes by Carl Von Clausewitz
#4. We must evaluate the political sympathies of other states and the effect war may have on them. To assess these things in all their ramifications and diversity is plainly a colossal task. Rapid and correct appraisal of them clearly calls for the intuition of a genius; to master all this complex mass by sheer methodical examination is obviously impossible. Bonaparte was quite right when he said that Newton himself would quail before the algebraic problems it could pose. #Quote by Carl Von Clausewitz
War Relief quotes by Don Winslow
#5. I was trying in 'The Power of the Dog' to write a brutally accurate in-your-face, if you will, description of 30 years in the war on drugs. And the effect that that had on people. #Quote by Don Winslow
War Relief quotes by Anne Rice
#6. Ah, the marvel of queens. Even in ancient times he had heard talk of queens protecting their kingdoms, while kings go forth to conquer new ones, of queens protecting their power, while kings seek more. And in modern times, he had heard tell of a great queen, Elizabeth of England, who had followed this very path, protecting her great kingdom and its far-flung colonies, but never initiating a war to gain increased power or land. #Quote by Anne Rice
War Relief quotes by Felix Mendelssohn
#7. And here we come to the vital distinction between the advocacy of temperance and the advocacy of prohibition. Temperance and self-control are convertible terms. Prohibition, or that which it implies, is the direct negation of the term self-control. In order to save the small percentage of men who are too weak to resist their animal desires, it aims to put chains on every man, the weak and the strong alike. And if this is proper in one respect, why not in all respects? Yet, what would one think of a proposition to keep all men locked up because a certain number have a propensity to steal? #Quote by Felix Mendelssohn
War Relief quotes by Timothy Snyder
#8. American and British forces reached none of the bloodlands and saw none of the major killing sites. It is not just that American and British forces saw none of the places where the Soviets killed, leaving the crimes of Stalinism to be documented after the end of the Cold War and the opening of the archives. It is that they never saw the places where the Germans killed, meaning that understanding of Hitler's crimes has taken just as long. The photographs and films of German concentration camps were the closest that most westerners ever came to perceiving the mass killing. Horrible though these images were, they were only hints at the history of the bloodlands. They are not the whole story; sadly, they are not even an introduction. #Quote by Timothy Snyder
War Relief quotes by Scott Reintgen
#9. I watch him die and remind myself that kings aren't innocent in war. When you put on the crown and order troops to kill, you invite the judgement of an enemy's sword. #Quote by Scott Reintgen
War Relief quotes by Cindy Sheehan
#10. 58% of the American public are with us. We're preaching to the choir, but the choir's not singing, if all of the 58% started singing, this war would end. #Quote by Cindy Sheehan
War Relief quotes by J.P. Moreland
#11. From space travel to organ transplants, one of the most important influences shaping the modern world is science. Amazingly, people who lived during the Civil War had more in common with Abraham than with us. If Christians are going to speak to that world and interact with it responsibly, they must interact with science. #Quote by J.P. Moreland
War Relief quotes by Claudio Magris
#12. Speaking of the capitulation of Bulgaria, an event decisive to the outcome of the First World War and therefore to the end of a civilisation, Count Karolyi writes that while he was living through it he did not realise its importance, because "at that moment, 'that moment' had not yet become 'that moment'". The same is true in fiction for Fabrizio del Dongo, concerning the battle of Waterloo: while he is fighting it, it does not exist. In the pure present, the only dimension, however, in which we live, there is no history. At no single instant is there such a thing as the Fascist period or the October revolution, because in that fraction of a second there is only the mouth swallowing saliva, the movement of a hand, a glance at the window. #Quote by Claudio Magris
War Relief quotes by Martin Seligman
#13. It's my belief that, since the end of the Second World War, psychology has moved too far away from its original roots, which were to make the lives of all people more fulfilling and productive, and too much toward the important, but not all-important, area of curing mental illness. #Quote by Martin Seligman
War Relief quotes by Francois Rabelais
#14. Such is the nature and make-up of the French that they are only good at the start. Then they are worse than devils, but, given time, they're less than women. #Quote by Francois Rabelais
War Relief quotes by Noam Chomsky
#15. I mean, remember what the Vietnam War was fought for, after all. The Vietnam War was fought to prevent Vietnam from becoming a successful model of economic and social development for the Third World. And we don't want to lose the war, Washington doesn't want to lose the war. So far we've won: Vietnam is no model for development, it's a model for destruction. But if the Vietnamese could ever pull themselves together somehow, Vietnam could again become such a model―and that's no good, we always have to prevent that. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
War Relief quotes by Martin Caidin
#16. Three-hundred times as many people died in Hamburg during the ten-day blitz as died in Coventry during the entire course of the war. Not even Hiroshima and Nagasaki, suffering the smashing blows of nuclear explosions, could match the utter hell of Hamburg. #Quote by Martin Caidin
War Relief quotes by Margaret Atwood
#17. My mother took the train to Halifax to see my father off. It was crammed with men en route to the Front; she could not get a sleeper, so she travelled sitting up. There were feet in the aisles, and bundles, and spittoons; coughing, snoring - drunken snoring, no doubt. As she looked at the boyish faces around her, the war became real to her, not as an idea but as a physical presence. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
War Relief quotes by Amos Elon
#18. In Jerusalem, the various modes of worship essentially stood for the same cause but were equally hateful to one another. They never served as a unifying factor. Their adherents were equally manipulated by the clergies to regard the others as wicked infidels or idolaters. The centuries passed in constant pious agitation and in frequent religious wars. #Quote by Amos Elon
War Relief quotes by Thomas Harding
#19. The British government had become fearful of how its citizens would react to a wave of Jewish refugees from Germany, and had clamped down on immigration. #Quote by Thomas Harding
War Relief quotes by C.S. Lewis
#20. The whole thing became a matter of speculation: I was soon (in the famous words) "altering 'I believe' to 'one does feel.' " And oh, the relief of it! #Quote by C.S. Lewis
War Relief quotes by Jamie L. Harding
#21. She did not respond, only clung harder to my embrace, and I held her with all the afflictions of a man torn by love. What a miracle she was, what a truly exquisite paragon of beauty and virtue so incredibly combined. And all perhaps wrenched from my grasp because of a war I had no real interest in nor knowledge of. In that moment I did not care who won, if only it would end and I could be with her. I would accept the whole responsibility of defeat if I had to, if only it meant a life with her by my side.
I just wanted her. Needed her. As simply and clearly as one needs food and oxygen and light, I needed her in my life.
And above us, flittering tranquilly in the trees above, the finches and skylarks continued to sing peacefully into the fading sun. #Quote by Jamie L. Harding
War Relief quotes by Douglas MacArthur
#22. Nothing would please me better than if they would give me three months and then attack here. #Quote by Douglas MacArthur
War Relief quotes by Rachel Hartman
#23. How did you stand lying about yourself for years? You must have felt cut off from the whole world."
I fought down the lump in my throat. "I did indeed. And then I met this prince who seemed able to see through me, to the truth behind the lies. He was terrifying and fascinating, but to my amazement, it was an immeasurable relief to be seen. #Quote by Rachel Hartman
War Relief quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#24. They have given their sons to the military services. They have stoked the furnaces and hurried the factory wheels. They have made the planes and welded the tanks. Riveted the ships and rolled the shells. #Quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt
War Relief quotes by Francois Rabelais
#25. According to true military art, one should never push one's enemy to the point of despair, because such a state multiplies his strength and increases his courage which had already been crushed and failing, and because there is no better remedy for the health of beaten and overwhelmed men than the absence of all hope. #Quote by Francois Rabelais
War Relief quotes by Sebastian Barry
#26. Trench dirt didn't always wash out, I am sure. #Quote by Sebastian Barry
War Relief quotes by Dorothy Day
#27. To try to stop war by placing before men's eyes the terrible suffering involved will never succeed, because men are willing (in their thoughts and imaginations at least) to face any kind of suffering when motivated by noble aims like the vague and tremendous concept of freedom ... Or, in their humility (or sloth - who knows?) men are quite willing to leave decisions to others 'who know more about it than we do. #Quote by Dorothy Day
War Relief quotes by Anacreon
#28. Cursed be he above all others Who's enslaved by love of money. Money takes the place of brothers, Money takes the place of parents, Money brings us war and slaughter. #Quote by Anacreon
War Relief quotes by Frank Buckles
#29. Some of our German passengers on the ship would be crying. The Brits were the same way. They were crying, because they realized a new war was about to break out across Europe, with Hitler at the head of the goose-stepping parade. #Quote by Frank Buckles
War Relief quotes by Thomas Sowell
#30. Brainy folks were also present in Lyndon Johnson's administration, especially in the Pentagon, where Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara's brilliant 'whiz kids' tried to micro-manage the Vietnam war, with disastrous results. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
War Relief quotes by Ernest Belfort Bax
#31. Lutheran Reformation, from its inception in 1517 down to the Peasants' War of 1525, at once absorbed, and was absorbed by, all the revolutionary elements of the time. #Quote by Ernest Belfort Bax
War Relief quotes by Widad Akreyi
#32. Toxic remnants of war represent a profound challenge for the protection of public health and the restoration of the environment in countries affected by conflict. #Quote by Widad Akreyi
War Relief quotes by Aundrea Singer
#33. And maybe the Iraqis could've missed, or shot at something else. Or maybe the other helicopter could've seen them first. Or, I don't know, maybe Bush could've never started the war in the first place! You're still not getting it-none of that had anything to do with you. Did you start the fire? Did you?" Gabriel repeated when Jake didn't say anything. "I'm going to sit here until you answer me. #Quote by Aundrea Singer
War Relief quotes by Anatoliy Golitsyn
#34. The Cold War may be 'over' for the West. For the Soviets it has entered a new, active and promising phase. #Quote by Anatoliy Golitsyn
War Relief quotes by Sergei Lavrov
#35. I don't think you can perpetrate war crimes with defensive weapons, with air defense systems. #Quote by Sergei Lavrov
War Relief quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#36. He is right. We are not youth any longer. We don't want to take the world by storm. We are fleeing. We fly from ourselves. From our life. We were eighteen and had begun to love life and the world; and we had to shoot it to pieces. The first bomb, the first explosion, burst in our hearts. We are cut off from activity, from striving, from progress. We believe in such things no longer, we believe in war. #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
War Relief quotes by Sally Wister
#37. They were not, I am certain almost, first-rate gentlemen. (How different from our other officers.) But they are gone to Virginia, where they may sing, dance, and eat turkey hash and fry'd hominy all day long, if they choose. #Quote by Sally Wister
War Relief quotes by Charles Demuth
#38. The last mad throb of red just as it turns green; the ultimate shriek of orange calling all the blues of heaven for relief and support ... each color almost regains the fun it must have felt within itself on forming the first rainbow. #Quote by Charles Demuth
War Relief quotes by Alexander H. Stephens
#39. Its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery ... is his natural and normal condition. #Quote by Alexander H. Stephens
War Relief quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#40. Inthe first half of the century, British intelligence was principally a machine for involving the United States in war on the British side. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
War Relief quotes by Michael Ondaatje
#41. I want the marginality to come into the center. This is the thing I was conscious of growing up, when I later lived in England. I saw all these war movies that came out shortly after the war, and they were all about the war being fought by Englishmen or Americans, there were no other "allies" in it - from India or Australia, etc. #Quote by Michael Ondaatje
War Relief quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#42. But, to tell the truth, a soldier doesn't notice a war much more than a civilian does, except his own tiny piece of it and that just on the days it is happening. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
War Relief quotes by David Jones
#43. But how intolerable bright the morning is where we who are alive and remain, walk lifted up, carried forward by an effective word. #Quote by David Jones
War Relief quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#44. War is not the only arena where peace is done to death. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
War Relief quotes by Randall Jarrell
#45. Most of the people in a war never fight for even a minute though they bear for years and die forever. They do not fight, but only starve, only suffer, only die: the sum of all this passive misery is that great activity, War. #Quote by Randall Jarrell
War Relief quotes by Tara Altebrando
#46. It didn't matter.
Carson wasn't the one for me. He wasn't even the one for right now. My life would hopefully have its great love story but this wasn't it. It would happen in D.C. in the next four years or it would happen in Africa, if I ever got there, or in Sienna or, for all I knew, Kentucky or Timbuktu.
Life was long.
And people only really had great love affairs in high school in the movies. And maybe during world wars. But this was not a movie and not a war, even if it sometimes felt that way. It was only high school and it was almost over with anyway. #Quote by Tara Altebrando
War Relief quotes by Thabo Katlholo
#47. To understand what happened in Zimbabwe its worth trying to see things through the Zimbabwean people prism for a moment. Immune from the propaganda and the western media mind- bend. The real issues started a long, long time ago before the current regimes. Those who came bearing greed and seeking to rip off the cradle of Sub-Saharan Africa orchestrated the demise the people of Zimbabwe found themselves reeling in #Quote by Thabo Katlholo
War Relief quotes by Steven Pinker
#48. The world has far too much morality, at least in the sense of activity of people's moral instincts. If you look, and this become clear to me as I tried to identify the causes of violence at various scales throughout human history, from police blotters where the biggest motive for homicide is not just amoral predacious: a smuggler killing someone to steal his Rolex, the biggest categories of motives for homicide are moralistic in the eyes of the perpetrator, of the murderer, is capital punishment: killing someone who deserve to die because: whether is a spouse who's unfaithful or someone who distim him in an argument over a parking space or cheated him in a deal. That's why people kill each other: for moral reasons. That is true as large scales as well.If you'll look up at the largest episodes of bloodletting in human history most of them would have moralistic motives: the nazi Holocaust, Pol Pot, Stalin, the Gulag, Mao, the European war of religions, the Crusades, all of them were killing people for, not because they wanted to accumulate vast amounts of money, or huge harems of women, but because they thought they were acting out of a moral cause. #Quote by Steven Pinker
War Relief quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#49. So far as I can see, the atomic bomb has deadened the finest feeling that has sustained for ages. There used to be so-called laws of war, which made it tolerable. Now we know the truth. War knows no law except that of might. The atomic bomb brought an empty victory but it resulted for the time being in destroying the soul of Japan. What has happened to the soul of the destroying nation is yet too early to see ... #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
War Relief quotes by Jim
#50. An act of a dictatorship is an act of a civil war - Freedom to the people. #Quote by Jim
