Martin Filler
The Russians and the Chinese have been making enormous investments in the military. We have the smallest Navy since 1916. We have the lowest number of troops since the end of the Second World War.

Timothy Garton Ash
There were two writer’s unions in those days[ during World War II ] , the studio-friendly guild called the Screen Playwrights, and the more activist Writer’s Guild. The studios were fairly upset that their group wasn’t effective, and they sought to punish the other union by labeling them as Communists.
Jay Roach
After World War II, it seemed that humanity understood something, and nothing like that would happen again.

Religious, tribal, national wars continue. The world continues to be in a sea of blood.
The world can be better if there’s love, tolerance and humility.
