From fear in every guise,
  From sloth, from love of pelf,
    By war's great sacrifice
      The world redeems itself.
      - John Davidson, War Song

To arms! to arms! ye brave!
  Th' avenging sword unsheathe,
    March on! march on! all hearts resolved
      On victory or death!

What argufies pride and ambition?
  Soon or late death will take us in tow:

A feat of chivalry, fiery with consummate courage, and bright with flashing vigor.

Carry his body hence!
  Kings must have slaves:
    Kings climb to eminence
      Over men's graves:
        So this man's eye is dim;
          Throw the earth over him!
      - Henry Austin Dobson, Before Sedan

They now to fight are gone;
  Armor on armor shone;
    Drum now to drum did groan,
      To hear was wonder;
        That with the cries they make,
          The very earth did shake;
            Trumpet to trumpet spake,
              Thunder to thunder.
      - Michael Drayton, Ballad of Agincourt
         (st. 8)

War is the trade of kings.

      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

War disorganizes, but it is to reorganize.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson
