More From Dwight D. Eisenhower
- "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed."
- "If you want total security, go to prison. There you’re fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking… is freedom."
- "I think that people want peace so much that one of these days government had better get out of their way and let them have it."

- "A women knows how to keep quiet when she is in the right, whereas a man, when he is in the right, will keep on talking."― Malcolm De Chazal
- "War makes strange giant creatures out of us little routine men who inhabit the earth."― Ernie Pyle
- "Hurtling the Pentagon into an unprecedented budgetary meltdown is horrifically irresponsible. Obama doesn’t care. This is war – not against the Taliban, but war against the GOP. He has Republicans on the ropes, and that’s a victory he savors and desires – unlike Afghanistan, where he seems only to want to turn tail."― John Podhoretz
