MILITARY


‘I destroy my enemy when I make him my friend.'

ABRAHAM LINCOLN


‘Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.'

ALBERT EINSTEIN


‘The purpose of all war is peace.'

AUGUSTINE


‘Too often, where we need water, we find guns instead.’

BAN KI-MOON U.N. SECRETARY GENERAL


‘I am more afraid of an army of 100 sheep led by a lion than an army of 100 lions led by a sheep.'

CHARLES MAURICE DE TALLEYRAND


‘Problems arising out of nationalism and national boundaries are all man made. Today, we are so interdependent that the concept of war has become outdated.... We must work to resolve conflicts in a spirit of reconciliation and always keep in mind the interests of others.'

DALAI LAMA


‘On that day let us solemnly remember the sacrifices of all those who fought so valiantly, on the seas, in the air, and on foreign shores, to preserve our heritage of freedom, and let us re-consecrate ourselves to the task of promoting an enduring peace so that all their efforts shall not have been in vain.’

DWIGHT EISENHOWER


‘The first thing a young officer must do when he joins the Army is to fight a battle; and that battle is for the hearts of his men. If he wins that battle and subsequent similar ones, his men will follow him anywhere; if he loses it, he will never do any real good.'

FIELD MARSHALL MONTGOMERY


‘Military power wins battles, but spiritual power wins wars.'

GENERAL GEORGE CATLETT MARSHALL


‘When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.'

JIMMY HENDRIX


‘I look forward to a future in which our country will match its military strength with our moral restraint, its wealth with our wisdom, its power with our purpose.'

JOHN F. KENNEDY


‘Instead of going after war-fighting capability, we have to go after war-making capability. The military is connected to the economic system, which is connected to their cultural system, to their personal relationships. We have to understand the links between all those systems.'

JOINT FORCES COMMAND (JFCOM) ANALYST


‘If you are ferocious in battle, remember to be magnanimous in victory.'

LIEUTENANT COLONEL TIM COLLINS


‘We will not submit to injustice - not merely because it is destroying us, but because it is destroying you as well.'

MAHATMA GHANDI


‘Command implies the existence of a club - legal authority to lead. Leadership inspires a less authoritarian hold over people - a natural appeal - and not much of a club.'

MAJOR GENERAL DALE O. SMITH, USAF


‘Politics is war without bloodshed, while war is politics with bloodshed.'

MAO TSE-TUNG


‘In war, the moral is to the physical as three is to one.'

NAPOLEON


‘Do what is right, not what you think the high headquarters wants or what you think will make you look good.'

NORMAN SCHWARZKOPF



‘In War: Resolution. In Defeat: Defiance. In Victory: Magnanimity. In Peace: Goodwill.'

WINSTON CHURCHILL
