World War I

Famous quotes containing the words war i, world and/or war:

    “... War is for everyone, for children too.
    I wasn’t going to tell you and I mustn’t.
    The best way is to come uphill with me
    And have our fire and laugh and be afraid.”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I ‘gin to be aweary of the sun,
    And wish th’ estate o’ the world were now undone.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I do not mean to exclude altogether the idea of patriotism. I know it exists, and I know it has done much in the present contest. But I will venture to assert, that a great and lasting war can never be supported on this principle alone. It must be aided by a prospect of interest, or some reward.
    George Washington (1732–1799)
