War

«No era inquietud propiamente dicha, sino una extraña tristeza que tenía poco de humano, porque no comportaba ni valentía ni esperanza. Así es como los animales esperan la muerte. Así es como el pez atrapado en la red ve pasar una y otra vez la sombra del pescador.»

Irène Némirovsky

John le Carré


«I know it is not fair to expect love from someone who hardly knows you at all. I know that we are too young to understand and too old to understand and that perhaps nobody understands at all.

Sometimes it felt like somebody had turned off the lights and we were all suffocating in the darkness.»

Emma Abdullah

«Perché finché la guerra è altrove, non riesci a prenderla sul serio. Come ha detto Martha Gellhorn "La guerra è un fatto personale". È proprio così: finché non capita a te, non riesci a capirla, tanto meno a immaginarla. Finché non entra nella tua vita è irreale»

Lucy Foley

«How dare you come into my home? And hurt my family? I ought to tear your throat out right here, right now!»

S.R. Crawford


«It's a thin line between what we're calling acceptable and not acceptable. As a leader, you're supposed to know when not to cross it. But how do you know? Does the army teach us how to control our emotions? Does the army teach us how to deal with a friend bleeding out in front of you? No.»

David Finkel

«Fire's tears were real now, and there was no helping them, for there was no time. Everything was moving too fast. She crossed the room to him, put her arms around him, clung to him, turning her face to the side, learning all at once that it was awkward to show a person all of one's love when one's nose was broken.»

Kristin Cashore

«who wishes to fight must first count the cost»

Sun Tzu


«War has no longer the justification that it makes for the survival of the fittest; it involves the survival of the less fit. The idea that the struggle between nations is a part of the evolutionary law of man's advance involves a profound misreading of the biological analogy.»
