God’s drifting in the heavens, devil’s in the mailbox
I got dust on my shoes, nothing but teardrops.

~Bruce Springsteen, "You’re Missing"

One is left with the horrible feeling now that war settles nothing; that to win a war is as disastrous as to lose one.

~Agatha Christie

All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.

Outside in the [cold] distance a wildcat did growl,
two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.

~Bob Dylan, "All Along the Watchtower"
[] words added by Jimmy Hendrix

They have not wanted peace at all; they have wanted to be spared war–as though the absence of war was the same as peace.

~Dorothy Thompson
