A WSC Thought for the Day

“Nearly always Governments which seek peace flag in their war efforts, and Governments which make the most vigorous war preparations take little interest in peace. The two opposite moods consort with difficulty in the human mind yet it is only by the double and, as it might seem, contradictory exertion that a good result can usually be procured.”

—Winston Churchill, Marlborough: His Life and Times, Vol. IV, chapter 3.
