The second best thing about space travel is that the distances involved make war very difficult, usually impractical, and almost always unnecessary. This is probably a loss for most people, since war is our race's most popular diversion, one which gives purpose and color to dull and stupid lives. But it is a great boon to the intelligent man who fights only when he must—never for sport.
I do not know with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.
War ... it paid well and liberated children from the pernicious influence of their parents.

In order for us human beings to commit ourselves personally to the inhumanity of war, we find it necessary first to dehumanize our opponents, which is in itself a violation of the beliefs of all religions. Once we characterize our adversaries as beyond the scope of God's mercy and grace, their lives lose all value. We deny personal responsibility when we plant landmines and, days or years later, a stranger to us — often a child – is crippled or killed. From a great distance, we launch bombs or missiles with almost total impunity, and never want to know the number or identity of the victims.

There never was a good war, or a bad peace.
I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its stupidity.
All war represents a failure of diplomacy.
War is the trade of kings.
War may sometimes be a necessary evil. But no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each others children.
It is only the dead who have seen the end of war.
