Text Quotes
The loss of reason in war seems to me honorable, like the death of a sentry at his post  (Loss In War Quotes) Someday, I have no doubt, the dead from today’s wars will be seen with a similar sense of sorrow at needless loss and folly as those millions of men who lie in the cemeteries of France and Belgium - and tens of millions of Americans will feel a similar revulsion for the politicians and generals who were so spendthrift with others’ lives.  (Loss In War Quotes) I read everything that Tolkien wrote, and also read biographies of him. I was fascinated by his experiences in World War I, which includes the loss of life of some of his very, very close friends. I think he writes about that a lot in ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings.’  (Loss In War Quotes) The estimated loss of up to six million dead is founded too much on both emotional, biased testimonies and on exaggerated data in the postwar reckonings of war crimes and on the squaring of accounts with the defeated.  (Loss In War Quotes) I believe that everyone can appreciate the right of a family to grieve the loss of a loved one in peace, regardless of anyone’s position on the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.  (Loss In War Quotes) My father died of brain cancer in 1991. I do not know anyone whose life has not been touched by the loss of a loved one to cancer. I wrote my book ‘Gracefully Gone’ about my father’s fight and my struggle growing up with an ill parent. I wrote it to help others know they are not alone in this all-too-often insurmountable war against cancer.  (Loss In War Quotes) During World War II, the pilot losses were staggering. In some bombing raids, as many as 80% of the planes that left did not return  (Loss In War Quotes) We cannot but feel uneasy about the losses caused by humanity themselves. Apart from the losses of life and property in destructive wars, the environment and natural resources are also being destroyed by human hands  (Loss In War Quotes) Of course, I also attribute some of my hearing loss to being in the infantry in World War II. It’s probably a combination of heredity and noise exposure  (Loss In War Quotes) Historians still often see the end of the war as meaning nothing more for Germany than lost territories, lost participation in colonization, and lost assets for the state and individuals. They frequently overlook the most serious loss that Germany suffered  (Loss In War Quotes) I always found the extraordinary loss of life in the First World War very moving. I remember learning about it as a very young child, as an eight- or nine-year-old, asking my teachers what poppies were for. Every year the teachers would suddenly wear these red paper flowers in their lapels, and I would say ‘What does that mean?’  (Loss In War Quotes) Loss of hope rather than loss of life is what decides the issues of war. But helplessness induces hopelessness  (Loss In War Quotes) The alternative to peace is war, which will expose everyone to mass casualties, misery and a loss of perspective for many years to come  (Loss In War Quotes) No one wins a war. It is true, there are degrees of loss, but no one wins  (Loss In War Quotes) The horrors of war, pale beside the loss of a mother  (Loss In War Quotes) War is a racket. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives  (Loss In War Quotes) War kills men, and men deplore the loss; but war also crushes bad principles and tyrants, and so saves societies  (Loss In War Quotes)
