A Quote by General Omar Nelson Bradley on war, peace, wisdom, and sermon on the mount

We live in a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants, in a world that has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience.  We have solved the mystery of the atom and forgotten the lessons of the Sermon on the Mount.  We know more about war than we know about peace, more about dying than we know about living.

A Quote by General Omar Nelson Bradley on america, dedication, faith, fear, food, fraud, hope, hunger, justice, nations, power, struggle, suspicion, trust, and world

It is to the United States that all freemen look for the light and the hope of the world. Unless we dedicate ourselves completely to this struggle, unless we combat hunger with food, fear with trust, suspicion with faith, fraud with justice - and threats with power, nations will surrender to the futility, the hopelessness, the panic on which wars feed.

This is as true in everyday life as it is in battle: we are given one life and the decision is ours whether to wait for circumstances to make up our mind, or whether to act, and in acting, to live.

A Quote by General Omar Nelson Bradley on retirement and service

I am convinced that the best service a retired general can perform is to turn in his tongue along with his suit, and to mothball his opinions.

A Quote by General Omar Nelson Bradley on death, destruction, learning, and men

We've learned how to destroy, but not to create; how to waste, but not to build; how to kill men, but not how to save them; how to die, but seldom how to live.
