War is a series of disasters which result in a winner.

War is too serious a matter to entrust to military men.

A collective tyrant, spread over the length and breadth of the land, is no more acceptable than a single tyrant ensconced on his throne.

A man who has to be convinced to act before he acts is not a man of action. You must act as you breathe.

Begin to free yourself at once by doing all that is possible with the means you have, and as you proceed in this spirit the way will open for you to do more.

It is far easier to make war than to make peace.

I don't know whether war is an interlude during peace, or peace is an interlude during war.
