Yves Montand Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Yves Montand from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

Pacifists are like sheep who believe that wolves are vegetarians.
- Yves Montand

It's funny how most activists are pacifists.
- Craig Bruce

We pacifists have not ceased to point to the grave
danger of armaments and to insist on their curtailment.
- Ludwig Quidde

Indeed; peace literature is almost exclusively read,
though to good effect, by pacifists,
while what is needed is the canvassing of those who
have not so far been won to the cause.
- Fredrik Bajer

 

Among pacifists it was above all the English who always
insisted on the importance of disarmament.
They said that the man in the street would not understand
the kind of pacifism that neglected to demand immediate
restriction of armaments.
- Ludwig Quidde

Naturally, the common people don't want war ...
but after all it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy,
and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along,
whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship,
or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.
Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought
to the bidding of the leaders.
That is easy. All you have to do is tell them
they are being attacked,
and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism
and exposing the country to danger.
It works the same in every country.
- Hermann Goering

Some pacifists have carried the sound idea of the prime
importance of security too far,
to the point of declaring that any consideration of
disarmament is superfluous and pointless as long as
eternal peace has not been attained.
- Ludwig Quidde
