ROBERT McNAMARA, The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara (2003)
I ain't draft dodging. I ain't burning no flag. I ain't running to Canada. I'm staying right here. You want to send me to jail? Fine, you go right ahead. I've been in jail for 400 years. I could be there for 4 or 5 more, but I ain't going no 10,000 miles to help murder and kill other poor people. If I want to die, I'll die right here, right now, fightin' you, if I want to die. You my enemy, not no Chinese, no Vietcong, no Japanese. You my opposer when I want freedom. You my opposer when I want justice. You my opposer when I want equality. Want me to go somewhere and fight for you? You won't even stand up for me right here in America, for my rights and my religious beliefs. You won't even stand up for my right here at home.
MUHAMMAD ALI, Ali (2001)
There's no honorable way to kill, no gentle way to destroy. There is nothing good in war except its ending.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN, Star Trek, "The Savage Curtain" (1969)
The history of the world is not people making friends. You had better weapons and you massacred them. End of story.
SPIKE, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "Pangs" (1999)
You can have war between races, war between cultures, war between planets. But once you have war between the sexes, you eventually run out of people.
KERR AVON, Blakes 7, "Power" (1981)
For those regarded as warriors, when engaged in combat the vanquishing of thine enemy can be the warrior's only concern. Suppress all human emotion and compassion. Kill whoever stands in thy way, even if that be Lord God, or Buddha himself. This truth lies at the heart of the art of combat.
HATTORI HANZO, Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)
Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!
PRESIDENT MERKIN MUFFLEY, Dr. Strangelove (1964)
We fight because it is our nature. It is the calling of our heart. Life and death are simply two possible consequences, both equal, neither valued nor feared above the other. For a warrior, death is simply the release from our obligation.
SHAKIRI, Babylon 5, "Moments of Transition" (1997)
Weapons never solve a problem, they only create more.
Tony Stark, Iron Man: Armored Adventures, "Hide and Seek" (2009)
The history of war is the history of pain. If we are wise, what is born of that pain matures into the promise of a better world, because we learn that we can no longer afford the mistakes of the past.
G'KAR, Babylon 5 (1994)
