Previous Quote of the week

Most favored quote: "War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
-- John Stuart Mill

(after the attack on Pearl Harbor, December7th, 1941)

In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
...Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
To his full height.
---William Shakespeare
(King Henry V, Act III, Scene 2)
