Quote of the day, May 25

Harry Emerson Fosdick, on war (1933)

“I renounce war for its consequences, for the lies it lives on and propagates, for the undying hatred it arouses, for the dictatorships it puts in place of democracy , for the starvation that stalks after it. I renounce war, and never again, directly or indirectly, will I sanction or support another.”
