Famous quotes containing the words army and/or ninth:

    The contention that a standing army and navy is the best security of peace is about as logical as the claim that the most peaceful citizen is he who goes about heavily armed. The experience of every-day life fully proves that the armed individual is invariably anxious to try his strength. The same is historically true of governments. Really peaceful countries do not waste life and energy in war preparations, with the result that peace is maintained.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

    Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
    Bible: Hebrew Exodus, 20:16.

    The ninth commandment.
