Famous Quotes about War and Democracy

FamousQuotesaboutWarandDemocracy Photo Here are 12 of my high school students' favorite quotes about war and democracy. Most of them date from the 20th century. A few of them date from earlier periods.
I always give you the quote. Sometimes you guess the author, sometimes the context, sometimes both. The authors are famous, but the context usually helps a lot. However, a good quote is universal and so it can be tricky attributing it to the right person if you don't remember your high school or your college history course material as well as you'd like !
I certainly hope you will score well (if you like 20th century history you will), but as I often say to my students: sometimes a B- paper contains a lot more real personal thinking than an A paper where the lesson was recited without any interesting hesitations.
