48 War and Battle Quotes from Literature

There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot rise. And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive. This ecstasy, this forgetfulness of living, comes to the artist, caught up and out of himself in a sheet of flame; it comes to the soldier, war-mad on a stricken field and refusing quarter; and it came to Buck, leading the pack, sounding the old wolf-cry, straining after the food that was alive and that fled swiftly before him through the moonlight. ~ The Call of the Wild by Jack London Fighting of a battle without belief is, I think, the sorriest task which ever falls to the lot of any man. ~ Orley Farm by Anthony Trollope War makes monsters of us all. ~ A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin Every man should lose a battle in his youth, so he does not lose a war when he is old. ~ A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin On the morning after the battle, the crows had feasted on victors and vanquished alike, as once they had feasted on Rhaegar Targaryen after the Trident. How much can a crown be worth, when a crow can dine upon a king? ~ A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin War makes thieves of many honest folk. ~ A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin The world is full enough of hurts and mischances without wars to multiply them. ~ The Return of the King by J. R. R. Tolkien Let us remember that a traitor may betray himself and do good that he does not intend. ~ The Return of the King by J. R. R. Tolkien I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend. ~ The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien "There are worse evils than war." ~ The Virginian by Owen Wister
