Language is the armory of the human mind, and at once contains the trophies of its past and the weapons of its future conquests.

A Quote by Ronald Wilson Reagan on courage, men, men and women, weapons, women, and world

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.

Ronald Reagan (1911 -)

A Quote by Robert Fulghum on beauty, crisis, earth, funny, gold, happiness, imagination, people, rest, secrets, time, weapons, and world

Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A Beauty Bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air - explode softly - and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth - boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap, either - not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on imagination, energy, reason, and weapons

What is the imagination? Only an arm or weapon of the interior energy; only the precursor of the reason.

A Quote by Paul Dickson on angels, destruction, past, vietnam, and weapons

The more innocuous the name of a weapon, the more hideous its impact. Some of the most horrific weapons of the Vietnam era were named 'Bambi', 'Infant', 'Daisycutter', 'Grasshopper', and 'Agent Orange'. Nor is the trend new: from the past we have 'Mustard Gas'', 'Angel Chasers' (two cannonballs linked with a chain for added destruction) and 'The Peacemaker' to name but a few.)

A Quote by Nathaniel Cotton on anxiety, death, life, reputation, and weapons

The two most precious things this side of the grave are our reputation and our life. But it is to be lamented that the most contemptible whisper may deprive us of the one, and the weakest weapon of the other. A wise man, therefore, will be more anxious to deserve a fair name than to possess it, and this will teach him so to live as not to be afraid to die.

Nathaniel Cotton (1705 - 1788)
