Karl von Clausewitz in Wikipedia
Courage, above all things, is the first quality of a warrior.
Karl von Clausewitz
To secure peace is to prepare for war.
It is even better to act quickly and err than to hesitate until the time of action is past.
Pursue one great decisive aim with force and determination.
War is nothing more than the continuation of politics by other means.
I feel like every time we come out there, we think we can win. I don't know that they think they're going to win every time, either, and everyone watching isn't thinking, 'Oh God, here it goes again, they're going to win,' and it's good.
A kind of duet-she as oboe, he as contrabassoon, and full of obbligato digressions.
The image of myself which I try to create in my own mind in order that I may love myself is very different from the image which I try to create in the minds of others in order that they may love me
W. H. Auden
