Publisher's Summary

We have selected for you 100 great quotes about war. While some see war as a universal and ancestral aspect of human nature, others argue that it is only a result of specific socio-cultural or ecological circumstances. According to Conway W. Henderson, "one source claims that 14,500 wars have taken place between 3500 BC and the late 20th century, costing 3.5 billion lives, leaving only 300 years of peace". So everyone should at least think about this subject, and be prepared to be concerned directly or indirectly by this question, war.
A great quote is very similar to a great thinking and a small poem. It can encapsulate a large web of ideas, thoughts, reflections, emotions in a few words. The reader of a great quote is forced to think about what he just heard. He has to think about those words and what they mean. An excellent quote requires the reader to pause to contemplate the real meaning and poesy of a few words. A great thought reaches a level of universality. Quotes hit hard into the essence of being human. The right quote can help us to see some invisible meanings of things oor subjects.

The range of authors of those 100 quotes about war is very wide : from Mark Twain to Winston Churchill, from Sun Tzu, of course, to Marcus Aurelius, Plato, Voltaire, Mahatma Gandhi, from Caius Iulius Caesar to General Patton.
