“In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun.  You find the fun and ‘snap’ the job's a game.”
"I want to know what I am, not what I should be."
"It's not war that's insane, you see. It's the morality of it. It's not greed or ambition that makes war: it's goodness. Wars are always fought for the best of reasons - for liberation or manifest destiny. Always against tyranny and always in the interest of humanity. So far this war, we've managed to butcher some ten million humans in the interest of humanity. Next war it seems we'll have to destroy all of man in order to preserve his damn dignity. It's not war that's unnatural to us, it's virtue. As long as valor remains a virtue, we shall have soldiers. So, I preach cowardice. Through cowardice, we shall all be saved.”
“If you can’t appreciate what you’ve got, you better get what you appreciate.”
“War is too important to be left to politicians. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought.”
The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves but how she is treated.”
"There is no limit with what can be done with a human spirit, for good or evil.”
“The enemy's an age, a nuclear age.  It happens to have killed man's faith in his ability to influence what happens to him. And out of this comes a sickness, and out of sickness a frustration, a feeling of impotence, helplessness, weakness.  And from this desperation, we look for a champion in red, white, and blue.”
“I don't want to know what's good, or bad, or true.  I let God worry about the truth.  I just want to know the momentary fact about things.  Life isn't good, or bad, or true.  It's merely factual, it's sensual, it's alive.  My idea of living sensual facts are you, a home, a country, a world, a universe, in that order.”
“Of course, it’s a friendly call.  Listen, if it wasn’t friendly, you probably wouldn’t have even got it.”
