What are wars?

Famous quotes containing the word wars:

    There’s in people simply an urge to destroy, an urge to kill, to murder and rage, and until all mankind, without exception, undergoes a great change, wars will be waged, everything that has been built up, cultivated, and grown will be destroyed and disfigured, after which mankind will have to begin all over again.
    Anne Frank (1929–1945)

    Nations like the Cuban and the Swiss
    Can never hope to wage a Global Mission.
    No Holy Wars for them. The most the small
    Can ever give us is a nuisance brawl.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The great wars of the present age are the effects of the study of history.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
