Famous quotes containing the words military and/or politics:

    In politics, it seems, retreat is honorable if dictated by military considerations and shameful if even suggested for ethical reasons.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)

    They who have been bred in the school of politics fail now and always to face the facts. Their measures are half measures and makeshifts merely. They put off the day of settlement, and meanwhile the debt accumulates.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
