Famous quotes containing the words warfare and/or undersea:

    The chief reason warfare is still with us is neither a secret death-wish of the human species, nor an irrepressible instinct of aggression, nor, finally and more plausibly, the serious economic and social dangers inherent in disarmament, but the simple fact that no substitute for this final arbiter in international affairs has yet appeared on the political scene.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)

    Saturday mornings we listened to Red Lantern & his undersea folk.
    At 11, Let’s Pretend/& we did/& I, the poet, still do, Thank God!
    Imamu Amiri Baraka (b. 1934)
