Quotes From General Omar Bradley

Quotes From General Omar Bradley

about living."

"Set your course by the stars, not by the lights of every passing ship."

"Wars can be prevented, just as surely as they can be provoked, and we who fail to prevent them, must share the guilt for the dead."

"We have grasped the mystery of the atom, and rejected the sermon on the mount."

"With the monstrous weapons man already has, humanity is in danger of being trapped in this world by its moral adolescents."

 "The way to win an atomic war is to make certain it never starts."

"If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner."

"Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death."

"This is as true in everyday life as it is in battle: we are given one life and the decision is ours whether to wait for circumstances to make up our mind, or whether to act, and in acting to live."
