August Deibel World War II

Famous quotes containing the words war, august and/or world:

    Those who dare to interpret God’s will must never claim Him as an asset for one nation or group rather than another. War springs from the love and loyalty which should be offered to God being applied to some God substitute, one of the most dangerous being nationalism.
    Robert Runcie (b. 1921)

    I hated her now with a hatred more fatal than indifference because it was the other side of love.
    —J. August Strindberg (1849–1912)

    In a world which furnishes so many employments which are useful, and so many which are amusing, it is our own fault if we ever know what ennui [boredom] is, or if we are ever driven to the miserable resource of gaming, which corrupts our dispositions, and teaches us a habit of hostility against all mankind.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
