    Whoever lights the torch of war in Europe can wish for nothing but chaos.
    Adolf Hitler (1889–1945)

    Ha ha! ha ha! This world doth pass
    Most merrily I’ll be sworn,
    For many an honest Indian ass
    Goes for a unicorn.
    Unknown. Fara Diddle Dyno (l. 1–4)

    Anything in history or nature that can be described as changing steadily can be seen as heading toward catastrophe.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    War both needs and generates certain virtues; not the highest, but what may be called the preliminary virtues, as valour, veracity, the spirit of obedience, the habit of discipline. Any of these, and of others like them, when possessed by a nation, and no matter how generated, will give them a military advantage, and make them more likely to stay in the race of nations.
    Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)

    The great pagan world of which Egypt and Greece were the last living terms ... once had a vast and perhaps perfect science of its own, a science in terms of life. In our era this science crumbled into magic and charlatanry. But even wisdom crumbles.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
