|To build may have to be the slow and laborious task of years. To destroy can be the thoughtless act of a single day.
– Winston Churchill (Nov 30, 1874-Jan 24, 1965)
|My fellow citizens of the world, we are here to make a choice between the quick and the|
dead. . .Behind the black portent of the new atomic age lies a hope which, seized upon with
faith, can work our salvation. . .We must elect world peace or world destruction.
– Bernard Baruch (1870-1965)
|I know war as few other men now living know it, and nothing to me is more revolting. I have long advocated its complete abolition, as its very destructiveness on both friend and foe has rendered it useless as a means of settling international disputes… But once war is forced upon us, there is no other alternative than to apply every available means to bring it to a swift end.
– Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964)
