We have come out of the time when obedience, the acceptance of discipline, intelligent courage and resolution were most important, into that more difficult time when it is a man's duty to understand his world rather than simply fight for it.
Ernest Hemingway (1898 - 1961)

. . . in modern war you will die like a dog for no good reason.
Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime. Ask the infantry and ask the dead.
The world is a fine place and worth fighting for.

My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way.
The world is a fine place and worth the fighting for and I hate very much to leave it.

But man is not made for defeat. A man can be destroyed but not defeated.
Never mistake motion for action.
I'm not going to get into the ring with Tolstoy.
Most people never listen.
