        By doom of battle.

To overcome in battle, and subdue
  Nations, and bring home spoils with infinite
    Man-slaughter, shall be held the highest pitch
      Of human glory.

      - James Monroe

In the wars of the European powers in matters relating to themselves we have never taken any part, not does it comport with our policy so to do. It is only when our rights are invaded or seriously menaced that we resent injuries or make preparation for our defence.

When after many battles past,
  Both tir'd with blows, make peace at last,

    Men have stood beneath the murderous iron hail!

We had nae heed for the parish bell,
  But still--when the bugle cried,
    We went for you to Neuve Chapelle,
      We went for you to the yetts o' Hell,
        And there for you we died!
      - Neil Munro, Roving Lads

Providence is always on the side of the last reserve.

The fate of a battle is the result of a moment, of a thought: the hostile forces advance with various combinations, they attack each other and fight for a certain time; the critical moment arrives, a mental flash decides, and the least reserve accomplishes the object.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

The fate of war is to be exalted in the morning, and low enough at night! There is but one step from triumph to ruin.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

The sight of a battlefield after the fight is enough to inspire princes with a love of peace and a horror of war.
