Pursue one great decisive aim with force and determination.
Two qualities are indispensable: first, an intellect that, even in the darkest hour, retains some glimmerings of the inner light which leads to truth; and second, the courage to follow this faint light wherever it may lead.
The backbone of surprise is fusing speed with secrecy.
Courage, above all things, is the first quality of a warrior.
Although our intellect always longs for clarity and certainty, our nature often finds uncertainty fascinating.
If the leader is filled with high ambition and if he pursues his aims with audacity and strength of will, he will reach them in spite of all obstacles.
To secure peace is to prepare for war.
War is not merely a political act but a real political instrument, a continuation of political intercourse, a carrying out of the same by other means.
War is the domain of physical exertion and suffering.
All action takes place, so to speak, in a kind of twilight, which like a fog or moonlight, often tends to make things seem grotesque and larger than they really are.
War is not an exercise of the will directed at an inanimate matter.
War is the continuation of politics by other means.
The political object is the goal, war is the means of reaching it, and the means can never be considered in isolation from their purposes.
It is even better to act quickly and err than to hesitate until the time of action is past.
Politics is the womb in which war develops.
