George Carlin quotes

"Lock them up and throw away the key." This is really stupid. Where are you going to throw away the key - right in front of the jail? His friends will find it! How far can you throw the key, 50-60 feet the most, even if you lay it flat on its side and you scale it - what are you gonna get, an extra ten feet, tops!

George Carlin quotes

"You know where you can stick it." Well, why do we always assume everyone knows where they can stick it? Suppose you don't know; suppose you're a new guy. You have absolutely no idea where to stick it.

Leonid Govorov quotes

The Germans had thought they could replace light artillery with mortars, believing it unnecessary to furnish their troops with light guns and howitzers. The theory was wrong as they found out during the invasion.

Leonid Govorov quotes

We are going for the enemy's fortifications. Artillery is doing its share in every phase of the battle. Automatic weapons are so extensively used to-day that we cannot possibly limit our operation to silencing enemy gun emplacements. Drive them underground? No, we have to wipe them out! The artillerymen can no longer be guided merely by orders for the infantry. It is waging battle in its own right.

Kirill Meretskov quotes

Умение воевать не приходит сразу. Это трудная наука, и не каждому она даётся, в том числе и не каждому командиру. Один становится настоящим военным с мужественной душой, расчётливым умом и ведёт людей к победе. Второй превращается в хорошего штабного работника, но под пулями празднует труса. Третий ведёт себя отважно, однако не умеет руководить подчинёнными. А четвёртый вообще годен только на то, чтобы мечтать о ратных подвигах, лёжа на диване. Увы, жизнь впоследствии убедила меня, что даже среди профессиональных военнослужащих попадаются порой представители второй, третьей и четвёртой категории лиц.

Oskar Shindler quotes

I hated the brutality, the sadism, and the insanity of Nazism. I just couldn't stand by and see people destroyed. I did what I could, what I had to do, what my conscience told me I must do. That's all there is to it. Really, nothing more.
