A Quote by William Clark Gable on arrogance, dreams, patriotism, slavery, victory, war, winning, and words

Disagreeing with the fervent patriotism of the Confederates: "I think it's hard winning a war with words, gentlemen. . . . I'm saying very plainly that the Yankees are better equipped than we. . . . All we've got is cotton and slaves, and arrogance." "I seem to be spoiling everybody's brandy and cigars and dreams of victory."

Clark Gable (1901 - 1960)
