Famous quotes containing the words world and/or war:

    Life’s an awfully lonesome affair.... You come into the world alone and you go out of the world alone yet it seems to me you are more alone while living than even going and coming.
    Emily Carr (1871–1945)

    A nice war is a war where everybody who is heroic is a hero, and everybody more or less is a hero in a nice war. Now this war is not at all a nice war.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
