Fought

Famous quotes containing the word fought:

    I started out very quiet and I beat Turgenev. Then I trained hard and I beat de Maupassant. I’ve fought two draws with Stendhal, and I think I had an edge in the last one. But nobody’s going to get me in any ring with Tolstoy unless I’m crazy or I keep getting better.
    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)

    If the Third World War is fought with nuclear weapons, the fourth will be fought with bows and arrows.
    Louis, 1st Earl Mountbatten Of Burma Mountbatten (1900–1979)

    So here they are, the dog-faced soldiers, the regulars, the fifty-cents-a-day professionals riding the outposts of the nation, from Fort Reno to Fort Apache, from Sheridan to Stark. They were all the same. Men in dirty-shirt blue and only a cold page in the history books to mark their passing. But wherever they rode and whatever they fought for, that place became the United States.
    Frank S. Nugent (1908–1965)
