We say nothing essential about the cathedral when we speak of its stones. We say nothing essential about Man when we seek to define him by the qualities of men.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900-1944), French aviator, author. Flight to Arras, ch. 23 (1942).
War is not a true adventure. It is a mere ersatz. Where ties are established, where problems are set, where creation is stimulated—there you have adventure. But there is no adventure in heads-or-tails, in betting that the toss will come out of life or death. War is not an adventure. It is a disease. It is like typhus.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900-1944), French aviator, author. Flight to Arras, ch. 8 (1942).
If France is to be judged, judge her not by the effects of her defeat but by her readiness to sacrifice herself.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900-1944), French aviator, author. Flight to Arras, ch. 15 (1942).
