Famous quotes containing the words max and/or factor:

    What do any of us know of the private past of even the most harmless and kind-looking individuals?
    Arnold Phillips, Max Nosseck (1902–1972)

    Weapons are an important factor in war, but not the decisive factor; it is people, not things, that are decisive. The contest of strength is not only a contest of military and economic power, but also a contest of human power and morale. Military and economic power is necessarily wielded by people.
    Mao Zedong (1893–1976)
