Carl Clausewitz

German military theorist
Our knowledge of circumstances has increased, but our uncertainty, instead of having diminished, has only increased. The reason of this is, that we do not gain all our experience at once, but by degrees; so our determinations continue to be assailed incessantly by fresh experience; and the mind, if we may use the expression, must always be under arms.More Carl Clausewitz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The invention of gunpowder and the constant improvement of firearms are enough in themselves to show that the advance of civilization has done nothing practical to alter or deflect the impulse to destroy the enemy, which is central to the very idea of war.More Carl Clausewitz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Only great and general battles can produce great resultsMore Carl Clausewitz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
