Eisenhower Says:

"I despise people who go to the gutter on either the right or the left and hurl rocks at those in the center."

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."

"A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both."

"How far can you go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from outside?"

"I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity."

"I think that people want peace so much that one of these days government had better get out of their way and let them have it."
