Attack On Mers-el-k��bir

Famous quotes containing the words attack on and/or attack:

    It is well worth the efforts of a lifetime to have attained knowledge which justifies an attack on the root of all evil—viz. the deadly atheism which asserts that because forms of evil have always existed in society, therefore they must always exist; and that the attainment of a high ideal is a hopeless chimera.
    Elizabeth Blackwell (1821–1910)

    Scandal is an importunate wasp, against which we must make no movement unless we are quite sure that we can kill it; otherwise it will return to the attack more furious than ever.
    —Sébastien-Roch Nicolas De Chamfort (1741–1794)
