"Goddammit. Yeah, I have. First, there's a huge difference between being arrested and being guilty. Second, see, the law changes and I don't. How I stand vis-à-vis the law at any given moment depends on the law. The law can change from state to state, from nation to nation, from city to city. I guess I have to go by a higher law. How's that? Yeah, I consider myself a road man for the lords of karma."
"I understand that fear is my friend, but not always. Never turn your back on fear. It should always be in front of you, like a thing that might have to be killed. "
"I was also drunk, crazy and heavily armed at all times. People trembled and cursed when I came into a public room and started screaming in German. "
Gentlemen, I like war. Gentlemen, I like war. Gentlemen, I love war.
I like genocide. I like blitzkrieg. I like aggressive war. I like defensive war. I like sieges. I like breaking through. I like withdrawing. I like mopping up. I like retreating.
In moors, on highways, in trenches, in plains, on tundra, in desert, on sea, in sky, in mud, in marshes, I love every aspect of war that takes place on this earth.
I like blowing away the enemy with the thunderous roar of a line of guns going off all at once. When an enemy is shot to pieces after being thrown high in the air, my heart dances. I like crushing the enemy tank with the 88mm on our tanks. When I mowed down the enemy who fled screaming from the burning tank with an MG, my heart leapt.
I like it when infantry plow through the enemy's lines with their bayonets all in line. I remember being moved when seeing new recruits, filled with panic, stabbing an already dead enemy again and again...
Seeing an escapee being strung from a lamppost in the street is unendurably exciting. Seeing a captive be thrown down with a piercing shriek as my own hand falls was spectacular.
When the pitiful resistance came bravely with their small firearms, and we destroyed them and a good chunk of the city with the 4.8 tonne bomb, I was at my height.
I like it when we are destroyed with the morning dew. It is a sad thing when the town one is supposed to protect is trampled, and the women and children violated and killed.
I like being squashed and destroyed by England and America's amount of material resources. Being followed by English and American forces and having to crawl around on the ground like a pesky insect is the ultimate disgrace.
Gentlemen, I desire a war that is like hell! Gentlemen, my companions in the battalion, who follow me...gentlemen, what do you desire? Do you desire war as well? Do you desire a war of no mercy? Do you desire a conflict that stretches the limits of iron, wind, lightning and fire to the limit, one that will kill all the crows on this planet?
We used all the strength in our bodies to clench our fists. But for us, who have waited and waited in the depths of this darkness for half a century, a mere war is not enough! It must be a great war! A whole-hearted great war! We are nothing more than a thousand remaining soldiers of a battalion, but I believe you are all veterans, each worth a thousand men. In that case, including me, we are a million and one strong. Let us drive away those who have forgotten us, let us pull awake those who have fallen in their sleep. Let us pull them up by their hair and pry their eyes open and make them remember. Let us remind them of the taste of fear. Let us remind them of the sound of our military shoes pounding. Let us remind them that there are things between the earth and the sky which they would not even dream to be possible.
We will burn the world down.
Here we go, gentlemen.

"You know those 6000 ships you say the allies don't have? Well, they have them" -The Longest Day
Here's a few movie quotes from one I watched last night:
Topper: I want to meet your parents and pet your dog. Ramada: My parents are dead, my dog ate them.
[Addressing the Japanese Ambassador and delegation] President Thomas 'Tug' Benson: It seems like only yesterday I was strafing so many of your homes. Here I am today, begging you not to make such good cars.
President Benson: We'll settle this the old Navy way: first guy to die, LOSES!
President Benson: Every time I give an order, it gets screwed up! Plan a reception, wrong hors d'oeuvres. Appoint an ambassador, he leaves the country.
President Benson: Here's the target area. Gerou: That's Minnesota, sir. President Benson: Damn it, man, that's the genius of my plan. Why go over there to fight? We can do it right here at home, and get in some good fishing while we're at it. Gerou: Sir, the enemy is over there. President Benson: Then we'll fly them over here. Their families too. We'll teach them to skate... Do I have to think of everything?
Dexter: You don't understand. I can't walk... they've... tied my shoelaces together. Topper: A knot. Bastards!
Interdum feror cupidine partium magnarum Europae vincendarum
N'Ayez pas peur, De soufrir Le futur Nous attend
Les soldats reviendront! Arriveront victorieux! Donnez tout pour l'honneur!

Narrator: And when the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour... And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. The Bible, Revelation 8:1 and 8:6 [Cut to Crusader Antonius Block, resting near crashing waves on the beach. Silence abruptly descends, and a black-robed man with an unnaturally white face appears.] Block: Who are you? Death: I am Death. Block: You have come for me? Death: I have been for a long time at your side. Block: I know. Death: Are you prepared? Block: My body is afraid, but I am not. [Death approaches Block.] Block: Wait a moment. Death: You all say that. But I give no respite. Block: You play chess, do you not? … As long as I resist you, I live. If I win, you set me free.
[Block's squire, Jöns, returns from asking directions of a man who turns out to be long dead.] Block: Did he show you the way? Jöns: Not exactly. Block: What did he say? Jöns: Nothing. Block: Was he mute? Jöns: No, milord. He was most eloquent. Block: Indeed. Jöns: But very gloomy.
[Jöns encounters a man painting a church mural about mass death.] Jöns: Why all this daubing? Painter: To remind people of death. Jöns: That won't make them any happier. Painter: Why make them happy? Why not scare them? Jöns: Then they won't look at your picture. Painter: Yes, they will. A skull is more interesting than a naked woman. Jöns: If you scare them— Painter: They think— Jöns: Then they think. Painter: And are still more scared. Jöns: And fall into the arms of the priests. . . . [Jöns points to a part of the mural with a line of suffering people.] Jöns: What's that rubbish there? Painter: People think the plague is a punishment from God. Crowds wander the land lashing each other to please the Lord. Jöns: Lashing each other? Painter: Yes, it's a horrible sight. You feel like hiding when they pass. Jöns: Give me a gin. I've had nothing but water. I feel as thirsty as a desert camel. Painter: Scared after all? -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Block goes to confess at a confessional alcove in a church.] Block: I want to confess as best I can, but my heart is void. The void is a mirror. I see my face and feel loathing and horror. My indifference to men has shut me out. I live now in a world of ghosts, a prisoner in my dreams. Priest: Yet you do not want to die. Block: Yes, I do. [As Block looks away, we see now that the "priest" is actually Death.] Priest/Death: What are you waiting for? Block: Knowledge. Priest/Death: You want a guarantee. Block: Call it what you will. [Block kneels as if praying to the figure of Jesus.] Block: Is it so hard to conceive God with one's senses? Why must He hide in a midst of vague promises and invisible miracles? How are we to believe the believers when we don't believe ourselves? What will become of us who want to believe but cannot? And what of those who neither will nor can believe? Why can I not kill God within me? Why does He go on living in a painful, humiliating way? I want to tear Him out of my heart, but He remains a mocking reality which I cannot get rid of. Do you hear me? Priest/Death: I hear you. [Block turns to kneel before the priest behind the confessional screen.] Block: I want knowledge. Not belief. Not surmise. But knowledge. I want God to put out His hand, show His face, speak to me. Priest/Death: But He is silent. Block: I cry to Him in the dark, but there seems to be no one there. Priest/Death: Perhaps there is no one there. Block: Then life is a senseless terror. No man can live with Death and know that everything is nothing. Priest/Death: Most people think neither of Death nor nothingness. Block: Until they stand on the edge of life and see the Darkness. Priest/Death: Ah, that day. Block: [laughs bitterly] I see. We must make an idol of our fear, and call it God. Priest/Death: You are uneasy. Block: Death visited me this morning. We are playing chess. This respite enables me to perform a vital errand. Priest/Death: What errand? Block: My whole life has been a meaningless search. I say it without bitterness or self-reproach. I know it is the same for all. But I want to use my respite for one significant action. Priest/Death: So you play chess with Death? Block: He is a skillful tactician, [smiling] but I have not yet lost one piece. Priest/Death: How can you outwit Death? Block: [smiling] By a combination of bishop and knight. I will break his flank. [The "priest" turns to face Block through the screen.] Priest/Death: I shall remember that. [Block stands up, startled.] Block: Traitor! You have tricked me! But I'll find a way out.

Your foe is well equipped, well-trained, battle-hardened. He believes his gods are on his side. Let him believe what he will. We have the tanks on ours.
No spreading out, no fancy stuff, just smash through. Let's see how those degenerate sophisticates handle a healthy dose of pure unreasoning violence.
Disarmament, with mutual honor and confidence, is a continuing imperative.
Don't join the book burners. Don't think you are going to conceal faults by concealing evidence that they ever existed.
I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it. Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890 - 1969)
