Dave Grossman
“The Israelis have consistently refused to put women in combat since their experiences in 1948. I have been told by several Israeli officers that this is because in 1948 they experienced recurring incidences of uncontrolled violence among male Israeli soldiers who had had their female combatants killed or injured in combat, and because the Arabs were extremely reluctant to surrender to women.”
Dave Grossman, On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.”
Daniel J. Boorstin

Adam Nicolson
“The 19th century had chosen only to remember the happy warrior. The 20th century only the blood come gargling. Both are essential to any understanding of Trafalgar.”
Adam Nicolson, Seize the Fire: Heroism, Duty, and Nelson's Battle of Trafalgar

Adam Nicolson
“At that level through out the 18th century, another vision of admirable behavior persisted. The mob did not want the smooth conformable man, the slick hypocrite who could so politely maneuver his way into the rewards of high politics and high society. They wanted his very opposite, the clever thief. The man who thrived not by using the well oiled wheels of society but by opposing them and cheating them; by attending to the well-being of his own heroic self.”
Adam Nicolson, Seize the Fire: Heroism, Duty, and Nelson's Battle of Trafalgar
