Mourning Angel

War may sometimes be a necessary evil. But no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other’s children.

Jimmy Carter, Nobel Lecture, December 10, 2002

War is a series of catastrophes that results in a victory.

Georges Clemenceau (1841 – 1929)

    What a great quote. People who send other people’s children to war forget that it is just that – the powers that be rarely send their own children to war.

      Yes, I’ve always found Jimmy Carter to be a thoughtful man.
