I hope... that mankind will at length, as they call themselves reasonable creatures, have reason and sense enough to settle their differences without cutting throats for in my opinion there never was a good war, or a bad peace.
The way to secure peace is to be prepared for war.
For want of a nail the shoe was lost, For want of a shoe the horse was lost, For want of a horse the rider was lost, Forwant of a rider the battle was lost, For want of a battle the kingdom was lost, And all for the want of a horse.
He that would live in peace and at ease must not speak all he knows or all he sees.
There never was a good war, or a bad peace.
All wars are follies, very expensive and very mischievous ones.
Even peace may be purchased at too high a price.
Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.
There never was a good war nor a bad peace.
Wars are not paid for in wartime, the bill comes later.
There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
