World War II

Famous quotes containing the words world and/or war:

    Many children grow through adolescence with no ripples whatever and land smoothly and predictably in the adult world with both feet on the ground. Some who have stumbled and bumbled through childhood suddenly burst into bloom. Most shake, steady themselves, zigzag, fight, retreat, pick up, take new bearings, and finally find their own true balance.
    Stella Chess (20th century)

    Either war is obsolete or men are.
    R. Buckminster Fuller (1895–1983)
