Famous quotes containing the words general and/or chaplain:
“Mathematics is merely the means to a general and ultimate knowledge of man.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
“A chaplain is the minister of the Prince of Peace serving the host of the God of WarMars. As such, he is as incongruous as a musket would be on the altar at Christmas. Why, then, is he there? Because he indirectly subserves the purpose attested by the cannon; because too he lends the sanction of the religion of the meek to that which practically is the abrogation of everything but brute Force.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
