Famous quotes containing the words troops, national and/or army:

    O, now for ever
    Farewell the tranquil mind, farewell content,
    Farewell the plumèd troops and the big wars
    That makes ambition virtue! O, farewell!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    [D]rilling and arming, when carried on on a national scale, excite whole populations to frenzies which end in war.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    Methinks it would be some advantage to philosophy if men were named merely in the gross, as they are known. It would be necessary only to know the genus and perhaps the race or variety, to know the individual. We are not prepared to believe that every private soldier in a Roman army had a name of his own,—because we have not supposed that he had a character of his own.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
