The lesson of Pearl Harbor ought never to be forgotten, and of course the motto that came from that, 69 years ago, the war which my dad fought, was 'Remember Pearl Harbor, never again.' We need to keep that to mind.
Most wars are not fought over shortages of resources such as food and water, but rather over conquest, revenge, and ideology.
If the Founding Fathers and other patriots who fought during the Revolutionary War could see the United States today, I believe they would be proud of the path that the thirteen colonies, now fifty strong states, have taken since then.
The important thing in life is not victory but combat; it is not to have vanquished but to have fought well.
Pierre de Coubertin
My mother said I was a clingy kid until I was about four. I also remember that from the age of eight she and I fought almost every day.
Unless we do things in this country to slow down our population, slow down our birth control, provide better water for people, provide power for people, we're gonna find out that the next wars are not going to be fought over diamonds, gold and political things.
I have fought to protect those benefits that ensure better salaries for teachers across the Nation such as grants to pay off student loans and funding for Teach for America. Still, we must all do more to show our continued appreciation for our Nation's leading role models.
Vietnam was the first war ever fought without any censorship. Without censorship, things can get terribly confused in the public mind.
I definitely have the eye of the tiger. I've fought my way to where I am and will continue to do so. I'm a hard worker - I get it from my family. We only know work. Nothing was handed to us. When I believe in something, I go after it. It's very hard to tell me 'no.'
Wars of nations are fought to change maps. But wars of poverty are fought to map change.
Your battles inspired me - not the obvious material battles but those that were fought and won behind your forehead.
It's the first war we've ever fought on the television screen and the first war that our country ever fought where the media had full reign.
My father was an immigrant who literally walked across Europe to get out of Russia. He fought in World War I. He was wounded in action. My father was a great success even though he never had money. He was a very determined man, a great role model.
Life has a certain flavor for those who have fought and risked all that the sheltered and protected can never experience.
John Stuart Mill
Habit is necessary; it is the habit of having habits, of turning a trail into a rut, that must be incessantly fought against if one is to remain alive.

I've always been a fighter and I've always fought through things my whole life.
Listen, Bruce Lee fought out of anger. That's why they call it the 'Fists of Fury.' Michael Jackson danced with fury. I do stand up out of fury. I'm not mad at anybody. I'm not mad at any human being because I'm a human being.
Software-industry battles are fought by highly paid and out-of-shape nerds furiously pounding computer keyboards while they guzzle diet Coke. The stakes aren't very dramatic. Life? Liberty? The pursuit of happiness? Nope, it's about stock options.
Wars generally do not resolve the problems for which they are fought and therefore... prove ultimately futile.
Pope John Paul II
You don't always win your battles, but it's good to know you fought.
John Greenleaf Whittier

The Iraq war was fought by one-half of one percent of us. And unless we were part of that small group or had a relative who was, we went about our lives as usual most of the time: no draft, no new taxes, no changes. Not so for the small group who fought the war and their families.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
