„A professional soldier understands that war means killing people, war means maiming people, war means families left without fathers and mothers.“

—  Norman Schwarzkopf United States Army general 1934 - 2012

As quoted in U.S. News & World Report, Vol. 110, Issues 5 (1991 Feb 11), p. 32
Context: A professional soldier understands that war means killing people, war means maiming people, war means families left without fathers and mothers. All you have to do is hold your first dying soldier in your arms, and have that terribly futile feeling that his life is flowing out and you can’t do anything about it. Then you understand the horror of war.
Any soldier worth his salt should be antiwar. And still there are things worth fighting for.

For many years the castle was a source of power of the family who played an important part in the politics of old Poland.“

„We work with broken families and broken people who've lost hope and are helpless.“

—  Kailash Satyarthi Indian children's rights activist 1954

Times of India interview (2014)
Context: We work with broken families and broken people who've lost hope and are helpless. If people oppose my work, launch personal attacks, we know that we are on the right path. One colleague was shot, another was beaten to death. I've injuries all over my body. We work against a social evil. If this evil isn't reacting it means we aren't a threat.
