Belief is a virus, and once it gets into you,

Having seen the devastation of war first hand,
Eisenhower came both to despise war
and to see that "war settles nothing."

When truly necessary, violence met with violence -
but never hate responded to with hate.

and blind people, crippled. I don't know how they get through life.

you should be thankful that you're miserable
because you're very lucky to be miserable.
