“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”
Voltaire

Dwight D. Eisenhower
“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower

“Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.”
