Karl von Clausewitz

1780 - 1831

A Quote by Karl von Clausewitz on body, feeling, humanity, respect, and war

Let us not hear of generals who conquer without bloodshed. If a bloody slaughter is a horrible sight, then that is a ground for paying more respect to war but not for making the sword we wear blunter and blunter by degrees from feelings of humanity, until someone steps in with one that is sharp and lops off the arm from our body.
