Quotations about the warfare and waging war

Dwight Eisenhower – Humanity on a cross of iron

Share this quote:
Dwight EisenhowerEvery gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.

Dwight Eisenhower   (1890-1969)

Winston Churchill – Gratitude to British airmen

Share this quote:
Winston ChurchillThe gratitude of every home in our Island, in our Empire, and indeed throughout the world, except in the abodes of the guilty, goes out to the British airmen who, undaunted by odds, unwearied in their constant challenge and mortal danger, are turning the tide of the World War by their prowess and their devotion. Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few

Winston Churchill   (Nov 30, 1874-Jan 24, 1965)

Winston ChurchillWe shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.

Winston Churchill   (Nov 30, 1874-Jan 24, 1965)

Anne Frank – Is the Jew worth less than another

Share this quote:
Anne FrankIs discord going to show itself while we are still fighting, is the Jew once again worth less than another? Oh, it is sad, very sad, that once more, for the umpteenth time, the old truth is confirmed: ‘‘What one Christian does is his own responsibility, what one Jew does is thrown back at all Jews.’’

Anne Frank   (1929–1945)
