Famous quotes containing the words planning for, planning and/or battle:

    When we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember that virtue is not hereditary.
    Thomas Paine (1737–1809)

    Sensuality takes planning and work.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    In a time of war the nation is always of one mind, eager to hear something good of themselves and ill of the enemy. At this time the task of news-writers is easy, they have nothing to do but to tell that a battle is expected, and afterwards that a battle has been fought, in which we and our friends, whether conquering or conquered, did all, and our enemies did nothing.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
