Fighting for peace is like f*cking for virginity.

True revolution of values will lay hand on the world order and say of war, "This way of settling differences is not just." This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation's homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love.

Puerto Rico will be the first half-and-half banana republic state incorporated that will secede from the union. Then will come Liberty Island, then Mississippi Burning, Texas BBQ, Kentucky Fried Chicken—all of them—New York Yankees, Jersey Devils—you name it—will want to break apart—and demand a separation—a divorce. Things will not go well for the banana republic when the shackles and chains of democracy break loose and unleash the dogs of war.
The suicide bomber is an explosion of a contradiction in its paradox, victim and victimizer, yin and yang, two sides of the coin, fire bomb and fire extinguisher, prosecutor and defendant, hangman and hanged.
Banks are the temples of America. This is a holy war. Our economy is our religion.
A lo largo de todos estos años he tenido muchos enemigos y hay una coa que he aprendido: nunca entres en la batalla cuando tienes todas las de perder. Sin embargo, jamás dejes que una persona que te ha insultado se salga con las suya. Espera tu momento y, cuando estés en una posición más fuerte, devúelvele el golpe, aunque ya no sea necesario hacerlo.

The dynamics of war are so absolutely intense, the drama of war is so absolutely emotionally spellbinding that it's hard for you to go on with a normal life without feeling something is missing. I have had a wonderful life...I've enjoyed my life, but I find there are times when I'm pulled back into the whirlpool...the intensity of that experience was so overwhelming and almost intimidating that you can't quite let go of it.

To forget the war would be not just impossible, it would be immoral...It never goes away, it's something you have to endure the way you endured the war itself. There's no alternative. You can't wipe out these memories. You can't wipe out what you felt at that time or what you knew other people felt. It's part of your whole possession of life. And I suppose it does some good.

We have peace! And because there is peace, the occupiers can't behave so abominably anymore. All right, we're not free... After all we were born into slavery, and we will die in it. Oh yes, at first they'll exploit us ruthlessly. Fourteen hours of slave labor a day. A bowl of watery soup. Whippings, beatings... But that will pass with time. Because there is peace, they won't have a chance to get any new slaves.

And remember also that in fighting Man, we must not come to resemble him.

We shall not fail or falter; we shall not weaken or tire. Neither the sudden shock of battle, nor the long-drawn trials of vigilance and exertion will wear us down. Give us the tools and we will finish the job.
But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age, made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.'
Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realise that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events.
Today's achievement is a testament to the greatness of our country and the determination of the American people. The cause of securing our country is not complete, but tonight we are once again reminded that America can do whatever we set our mind to. That is the story of our history.

Love is a battlefield and I have fallen victim to it.
