A Quote by Alfred, Lord TENNYSON on fighting, lies, and truth

That a lie which is half a truth is ever the blackest of lies; That a lie which is all a lie may be met and fought with outright; But a lie which is part a truth is a harder matter to fight.

A Quote by Leonard Heath on fighting, glory, heroism, lies, pain, and sleep

On a lone barren isle, where the wild roaring billows Assail the stern rock, and the loud tempests rave, The hero lies still, while the dew-drooping willows, Like fond weeping mourners, lean over his grave. The lightnings may flash and the loud thunders rattle; He heeds not, he hears not, he 's free from all pain; He sleeps his last sleep, he has fought his last battle; No sound can awake him to glory again!

A Quote by Leonard Heath on fighting, glory, immortality, mortality, nations, sleep, spirit, and war

Yet spirit immortal, the tomb cannot bind thee, But like thine own eagle that soars to the sun Thou springest from bondage and leavest behind thee A name which before thee no mortal hath won. Tho' nations may combat, and war's thunders rattle, No more on thy steed wilt thou sweep o'er the plain: Thou sleep'st thy last sleep, thou hast fought thy last battle, No sound can awake thee to glory again.

A Quote by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. on babies, children, fighting, god, imagination, men, and war

You know - we've had to imagine the war here, and we have imagined that it was being fought by aging men like ourselves. We had forgotten that the wars were fought by babies. When I saw those freashly shaved faces, it was a shock. "My God, my God -" I said to myself, "it's the Children's Crusade."'

A Quote by Karl Raimund Popper on eternity, fighting, hell, intention, kindness, love, religion, and soul

We all remember how many religious wars were fought for a religion of love and gentleness; how many bodies were burned alive with the genuinely kind intention of saving souls from the eternal fire of hell.

Karl Popper (1902 - 1994)
