Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
War
 
All quiet along the Potomac to-night,
  No sound save the rush of the river;
While soft falls the dew on the face of the dead—
  The picket’s off duty forever.
        Ethel Lynn Beers.—The Picket Guard.
  1
War will never yield but to the principles of universal justice and love, and there have no sure root but in the religion of Jesus Christ.
        William E. Channing.—War.
  2
War educates the senses, calls into action the will, perfects the physical constitution, brings men into such swift and close collision in critical moments that man measures man.
        Emerson.—War.
  3
War is a terrible trade; but in the cause that is righteous,
Sweet is the smell of powder.
        Longfellow.—The Courtship of Miles Standish, Part IV. John Alden, Line 135.
